A quick switch from water to stock elevates this simple whole-grain side. Substitute chopped toasted almonds for a budget-friendly alternative to the pine nuts. If you're not a cilantro fan, use chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley instead.
Serves 2 (serving size: 1/2 cup)
Bring stock and quinoa to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove pan from heat; let stand 5 minutes. Stir in cilantro, pine nuts, oil, and salt.
