  3. 2 teaspoons pine nuts
  4. 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  5. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  6. 2 teaspoons pitted green olives
  7. Salt
  1. In a saucepan, boil the water. Add the quinoa, cover and cook over low heat for 12 minutes, until al dente. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. In a skillet, toast the pine nuts over moderate heat until golden. Add them to the quinoa along with the cilantro, lemon juice and olives. Season with salt and serve.
