DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the quinoa well to remove the bitter white coating. Drain thoroughly and set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and ginger and cook, stirring, until the shallots are slightly softened, about 1 minute. Add the quinoa along with the cardamom, coriander, cumin, and cayenne and stir to coat with the oil. Stir in the hot stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover the cook until all the water is absorbed, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the raisins, pine nuts, and parsley. Serve hot.
