Quinoa with Walnuts and Shallots

Quinoa with Walnuts and Shallots


  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste

Recipe Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Toast walnuts on a small rimmed baking sheet, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and slightly darkened in color, 6–8 minutes. Let cool; coarsely chop.

  • Meanwhile, thoroughly rinse quinoa; drain.

  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and ½ tsp. salt; stir to coat.

  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until shallots have softened, about 5 minutes. Add quinoa and stir to coat. Pour in 1½ cups water, increase the heat, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover. Cook until quinoa is tender and the germ has unfurled, 15–18 minutes. Season with salt. Just before serving, toss in toasted walnuts. Reserve ½ cup quinoa for Quinoa and Roasted Vegetable Salad.
