Quinoa Pilaf

Serves 4 to 6

In a heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté onion, celery and carrot until tender. Add quinoa and cook, stirring, until grains separate. Add broth, salt and pepper; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed and quinoa is tender. Fluff with a fork.


Quinoa with Pecans

Serves 4 to 6

Follow preceding recipe, but omit the carrot. While quinoa is simmering, in a skillet, melt 2 tbsp (25 mL) butter over high heat. Toast 1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped pecans. Stir into quinoa after fluffing.
