Directions

Combine the water, quinoa, olive oil, red onion, carrots, currants, orange zest, salt, and white pepper in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Cover and cook until the quinoa is tender and has absorbed the liquid, 12 to 15 minutes.

Remove the quinoa from the heat and allow the mixture to steam for 5 minutes, then fold in the pine nuts, and mint, and fluff with a fork. Serve hot.

    I'm a private chef for a lady with a very discriminating palate. Emeril is her favorite! I made this recipe for her (substituted raisins for currants which she doesn't like and she swooned! It is now one of her perfered side dishes.
