Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed (see Note)
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped thyme leaves
  • Freshly ground pepper

How to make this recipe

  1. In a medium saucepan, cover the quinoa with the water, add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over moderately low heat until all of the water has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender, about 12 minutes. Stir and let cool to room temperature.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix the olive oil with the vinegar, honey, shallot and thyme. Stir in the quinoa, season with salt and pepper and serve.

Notes

Rinsing quinoa before cooking removes its soapy, bitter coating.
