Quinoa Pilaf With Pine Nuts

March 30, 2013

Yep, I’m jumping on the quinoa bandwagon. Know why? Cause it’s tasty, that’s why! Oh yeah, and super healthy too. This is my favorite way to serve it so far.

1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
1 cup chicken broth
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, diced
2 Tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped


  • Bring quinoa and broth to a boil in a medium saucepan.
  • Reduce heat to low and cover.
  • Simmer until quinoa absorbs liquid, about 15 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion begins to brown, about 6 minutes.
  • When quinoa is done, fluff with a fork and transfer to a serving bowl.
  • Stir in onion, pine nuts and parsley.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
