    2 cups raw quinoa, organic if possible
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    1 medium carrot, peeled and diced
    1 medium red bell pepper, cored, diced
    1 large jalapeno pepper, cored & seeded, chopped fine
    6 scallions, thinly sliced
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 cup frozen peas
    1/2 cup chopped dry-roasted unsalted pistachio nuts
    2 teaspoons fresh thyme, minced


Serving size - 2 cups - makes 14 cups total.


Pour quinoa into a bowl of cold water and wash it, rubbing it between your hands. Drain and repeat until the water is clear.

Bring 3 quarts of salted water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the quinoa, stir once and return to a boil. Cook, uncovered, over moderate heat 10 minutes. Pour through a strainer and drain well. Transfer to a large bowl.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over moderate heat. Add the carrot and saute for 1 minute. Stir in the scallions and cook for another minute. Add the bell pepper, jalapeno pepper, and fresh black pepper and saute for about 2 minutes. Add the peas and stir to combine. Add the quinoa, chopped nuts and thyme and stir again to combine. Serve immediately.
