quinoa almond pilaf

quinoa almond pilaf
  • 1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 celery rib, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 8 almonds, coarsely chopped
  • 1 small tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 pinch coarse sea salt


  1. Combine quinoa, cold water, and salt in a saucepan; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, place a cover on the saucepan, and cook until the liquid is fully absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir celery, onion, carrot, and garlic in the hot oil until the onion is translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir almonds, tomato, raisins, salt, pepper, thyme, and oregano into the vegetable mixture; cook and stir 1 minute more.
  3. Fluff the quinoa with a fork and stir into the mixture in the skillet; cook and stir until evenly mixed and hot, about 30 seconds.
  4. Divide between 3 plates; sprinkle the top of each portion with a scattering of a few coarse sea salt granules for a surprising crunch of salty goodness.
