Qunioa with Walnuts and Currants

Qunioa with Walnuts and Currants

Here is a good summer recipe for Qunioa... Rinse the quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer with cool running before cooking to remove the saponin, a natural coating on the quinoa which can be an irritant to the stomach if not removed.  Some quinoa is sold pre-rinsed.

Ingredients:

-1 cup quinoa, rinsed

-2 cups reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth

-1/4 cup dried currants

-1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

-1/4 cup finely sliced scallions, green and white part (2 thin scallions)

Cooking Directions:

In a saucepan bring the quinoa and broth to a boil.  Add the currants, cover and reduce heat to low.  Cook for 15 minutes.  Turn off the heat, leave covered, and let sit for 5 minutes.  After 5 minutes open the pan and lightly fluff the quinoa with a fork to seperate the grains.  Gently stir in the walnuts and scallion.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
