INGREDIENTS

SERVES 4

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
  • 1 shallot(s)
  • 1 dash salt and pepper
  • 1 cup Red Quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cups Organic Chicken Broth
  • 1/4 cup Pistachios
  • 3 tbsp Parsley
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Mint

DIRECTIONS

1 Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add quinoa and cook, stirring frequently, until quinoa starts to toast and smell nutty, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil.
2 Stir in quinoa, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer gently until quinoa is tender, 25-30 minutes (15 if using white quinoa). Remove pan from heat, fluff quinoa with a fork. Cover; let stand for 5 minutes.
3 Fold pistachios, parsley, and mint into quinoa. Season with salt and pepper.
