Quinoa Pilaf

There’s something about the taste of raisins and nuts with grains that is so satisfying to me.  I had a hankering for that taste this weekend, so I made this couldn’t-be-easier, throw-together quinoa pilaf to go with our dinner.

I started by cooking some quinoa in vegetable stock.  When the quinoa was done, I added raisins (golden and regular), pine nuts, some olive oil and half of a lemon.

After literally dumping the ingredients into the pot by eyeball,

I put the quinoa pilaf over some raw spinach before serving.

The whole family loved this!  It’s now on my list of easy to prep, go-to healthy grains.  What are your favorite healthy grains?

I’m totally on board with the nutty/raisin flavor thing. It’s always so yummy.
