Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Water
1 cup Quinoa
1 Whole carrot; large
1 Whole corn on the cob
1 pinch Sea salt
Parsley; for garnish

The Whole Foods Bible by Chris Kilham Wash the quinoa well to remove bitterness. Drain in a fine sieve. Set aside.

Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan that has a tight-fitting lid.

Meanwhile, scrub and dice the carrot. Shuck the corn and cut the kernels off the cob.

When the water has come to a boil, add the salt, quinoa, carrot and corn kernels and return to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until all the water is absorbed.

Serve hot, garnished with parsley, a dab of unsalted butter if desired and lots of freshly ground pepper.
