    Recipe came from A Lyon in the Kitchen

    A serving would be approximately 1 Tbs in the pita pocket then filled with spinach and parsley.


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the stock and simmer. Stir in the quinoa and cook until the grains look as if they have a curly, pig-like, tail. Drain, then combine quinoa, garbanzo beans, cilantro, and red onion. Add enough Tahini Dressing to achieve your own personal desired taste. Serve inside a pita half with the desired sides.

½ teaspoon Kosher salt and a few good cranks of black pepper
¼ teaspoon cumin powder
½ cup vegetable stock, or as needed
