  • 1 1/2 cups quinoa, soaked in filtered water for 4 hours to overnight
  • Sea salt
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/3 cup raw pistachios


  1. Drain quinoa and rinse well. Drain again and place in a 2-quart saucepan.

  2. Add 1 3/4 cups filtered water, a large pinch of salt, and golden raisins. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 15 minutes. Let quinoa stand for 5 to 10 minutes until liquid is absorbed.

  3. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place pistachios on a baking sheet and roast until lightly golden and fragrant, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from baking sheet and coarsely chop. Add to quinoa and fluff with a fork to evenly distribute nuts and raisins. Season with salt.

    This is a recipe I had to change. I took out the rasins because I can't stand them and added apricots chopped. Also added a little chopped small celery (1 rib) After tasting I thought it needed more. added olive oil (2 T) and one T of brown mustard. tossed. Much better.
