Why I Love This Recipe

Since Quinoa is so high in protein, I'm always on the search for yet another tasty way to prepare it. This is nutty and delicious!!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 tsp oil
1/4 cup unsalted pistachios
1 cup chopped scallions
3/4 cup chopped dried apricots
1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups low-sodium vegetable stock
3 drops hot-pepper sauce
1 cup quinoa, rinsed
1/4 cup chopped cilantro


In two-quart saucepan, brown pistachios in oil and remove.

In same saucepan, add scallions, apricots, ginger, and garlic; cook 2 minutes.

Add stock and pepper sauce; bring to a boil.

Add quinoa and cilantro. Cover on low heat for 20 to 25 minutes.

Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Then add pistachios!!
