Here's one of my Quinoa Recipes. This one was interesting because the Quinoa is served hot, but the veggies are uncooked. It is crunchy. This was inspired by a similar one that I read at You can really alternate whatever veggies you have on hand, just as long as they are wet enough.

Crunchy Lemon Quinoa

1/4 cup Toasted Pine Nuts
1 cup Quinoa
2 cups Water
2 TBSP Lemon juice
2 TBSP Olive Oil
1/2 cup Red Onion
2 Celery Stalks chopped
1/2 Red Bell Pepper chopped
1/2 Green Bell Pepper chopped
3 Cloves garlic minced
1 Bunch Fresh Parsley, chopped
1/4 Tsp Red Cayenne Pepper
1/4 Tsp Coriander
--- Kosher Salt to taste
__ Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste

!. Toast the Pine Nuts. This can be done either in a dry skillet on the stove or in a small pan in the oven. Stir frequently and don't let them burn. They toast faster than most other nuts.

2. In a saucepan, bring the water, Quinoa and salt to a boil.Reduce heat and simmer until water is absorbed and Quinoa is soft, about 15 minutes. Fluff with fork. Cool slightly

3. Transfer Quinoa to a serving bowl and stir in all of the other ingredients.
