Expert Tips

  • COOKING GLUTEN FREE?: Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • Tip: Serve this dish warm or at room temperature, or chill it and serve as a salad.
  • Success: Make sure to thoroughly rinse the quinoa before cooking to remove its natural bitter coating.
  • How To: If you have the oven on, you can toast the pecans in a shallow pan at 350°F for 7 to 10 minutes, or toast them on the stove-top. Sprinkle pecans in ungreased heavy skillet; cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until nuts are browned.
