Recipe Ingredients for Broccoli-Quinoa Pilaf

1 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 small onion, chopped
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 cup quinoa, rinsed well
2 cups chopped broccoli
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup roasted almonds
2 scallions

Recipe Directions for Broccoli-Quinoa Pilaf

  1. # Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and season with teaspoon salt and teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and starting to brown, 3 to 4 minutes.

  2. # Add the quinoa and 1 cups water to the saucepan and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer gently until almost all the water has evaporated, 10 to 12 minutes. Fold the broccoli and raisins into the quinoa, cover, and cook until the quinoa and broccoli are tender, 8 to 10 minutes more. Remove from heat and fold in the almonds, scallions, teaspoon salt, and teaspoon pepper.
