Recipe Ingredients for Quinoa-Fennel Pilaf

2 cup quinoa
1 small white onion, finely chopped
1 cup celery
2 carrot, cut into 1/4-inch dice
1 cup fennel
2 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups water

Recipe Directions for Quinoa-Fennel Pilaf

  1. Rinse quinoa in a bowl in at least 5 changes of water, rubbing grains and letting them settle before pouring off water, until water runs clear. Drain in a fine sieve.

  2. Cook onion, celery, carrot, and fennel in butter in a 3-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, 5 to 6 minutes. Add quinoa and sauté over moderately high heat, stirring, until lightly toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add water and salt and pepper to taste and cook over moderately low heat, covered, until quinoa is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes.
