This was our side dish tonight along with the previously posted Tahini Salad – Salata Tahina
The lemon is very subtle in this dish. It just adds some brightness to the earthy quinoa. You could certainly double it if you would like a more pronounced lemon flavor.
Lemon Parsley Quinoa
2 cups uncooked quinoa
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
3 tablespoons parsley
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt to taste
Cook quinoa according to package directions, adding turmeric and desired amount of salt with the water.
After quinoa is cooked, add parsley and lemon juice, and stir to incorporate.
