Before starting this blog, I would post recipes on various other sites on the internet. In the interest of compiling all my food postings on one site, I repreint them here. Originally posted 27 January 2008.
Combine one cup quinoa with two cups water, a handful of raisins, a handful of dried apricots, and a little salt. Simmer, covered, for twenty minutes. Meanwhile, wash, remove head and ends from, and dice a sprig of green garlic. Heat a healthy amount of olive oil in a small pan, and add the garlic and a good amount of sunflower seeds, and sauté until garlic is fully cooked and seeds are just starting to brown. Turn off heat, and wait for quinoa to be done. When water has fully evaporated, remove from heat, mix in oil, garlic, and seeds, toss together to fluff the grain, and serve hot.
