Quinoa Pilaf

I didn’t make this last week because it turned out moths had gotten to my quinoa, which made me very bitter.

Quinoa Pilaf with Almonds and Raisins, from Vegetarian Times
six servings

2 medium carrots, diced
1 tablespoon oil or fat
1/2 an onion, sliced thin
1/4 tsp turmeric
3 cups water
1 1/2 cups uncooked quinoa
1/2 green bell pepper, diced (can be frozen)
2 T. slivered almonds
2 T. golden raisins
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed

Steam the carrots for 5-8 minutes (they should not be mushy)
Heat oil in large pan, and cook onion until translucent. Add turmeric, stir well, add water, bring to boil. Add quinoa, stirring to push it under the water. Place pepper, almonds and raisins on top. Cover and simmer about 25 minutes- quinoa should be light and fluffy, water absorbed. Add peas during the last five minutes and fluff with fork.
