Original recipe makes 4



Found this from an old magazine Harrowsmith without permission. Place quinoa in a fine-meshed sieve and rinse under warm running water for 1 min. Set aside. Heat butter in a heavy, med. saucepan over med. heat. Add tomatoes, shallots and garlic and saute for 3-5 mins, or till shallots are softened. Add stock or water and bring to a boil. Stir quinoa and cayenne, return to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for about 30 mins, or until liquid is absorbed. Let sit for 5 mins, and fluff grains with a fork to separate. Stir in fresh parsley and season with salt and pepper. Serves 4. (this ancient Peruvian grain has a nutty, almost sweet flavour that really needs no accent but is excellent with tomatoes and shallots).

Lovely dish. I love cooking with quinoa and Italian parsley so this is a definite favorite. And the recipe helped me use up some of the sun-dried tomatoes that's been stashed away in the fridge. The sun-dried tomatoes gave it a little bit of citrus (acid) that complemented well with the Lime & Cumin Mahi Mahi dish I made (recipe also from BigOven).

EXCELLENT! Added onions to it as well and used a teaspoon of coconut oil instead of butter. Will definitely make again. Healthy and delicious!

I have made a similar recipe that calls for cilantro instead of parsley. One of my favourites, I make this all the time.
