freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions
1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the quinoa and cook for 12 to 15 minutes until the quinoa is tender. Strain and rinse well with cold water. Drain well.

To roast whole, slivered, chopped or sliced almonds: Spread in an ungreased baking pan. Place in a 350F oven and bake 10 minutes or until golden brown and fragrant; stir once or twice to ensure even browning. Note that almonds will continue to roast slightly after removing from oven.
