Recipe: Cumin Raisin Quinoa

This nifty salad makes use of this week's ingredient, as well as last week's (cumin). How convenient! I say salad, because I serve it cold on my menu, but it is just as good warm and therefore would be a terrific side dish.

Cumin Raisin Quinoa
serves 4-6 as a side

1C quinoa
2C veggie broth/water
1T cumin
1/4c golden raisins
1 small yellow onion, diced
olive oil
fresh cilantro for garnish

saute onions in oil until translucent
add cumin and stir to coat
add quinoa + raisins
add water/broth and bring to boil
reduce heat + let simmer 10-15 minutes or until water is absorbed.
stir in cilantro
