Cheesy Quinoa Pilaf with Spinach
adapted from allrecipes

Ingredients

1 cup quinoa
3 tablespoons olive oil
6 tablespoons pine nuts
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup fresh spinach leaves
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 cup grated parmesan cheese

Directions

Cook quinoa according to package directions.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, stir in the pine nuts, and cook until lightly toasted, about 2 minutes. Stir in the garlic, and cook until the garlic softens and the aroma mellows, about 2 minutes. Stir in the cooled quinoa and spinach; cook and stir until the quinoa is hot, and the spinach has wilted. Stir in the lemon juice, and all but a pinch of the cheese. Stir until the cheese has melted. Serve sprinkled with the remaining cheese.
