Quinoa With Pine Nuts and Raisins

Serves 2 persons

300 gr of red quinoa
5 garlic cloves
half a lemon juice
handful of pine nuts
handful of golden raisins
salt, pepper (according to preference)

1. Place the quinoa in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until toasted, about 2 minutes. Add water (according to the box indications) and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until the liquid is absorbed, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, about 2 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, toast the pine nuts in a skillet over medium-high heat until golden; transfer to a plate. Add the olive oil and garlic to the skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring, until golden. Transfer the garlic to the plate, reserving the oil.
3. Fluff the quinoa with a fork. Add the pine nuts, garlic, reserved oil, parsley, raisins and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
