3 3/4 cups vegetable stock, 1 1/3 cups quinoa, rinsed, 3 oranges, 1 fennel bulb, thinly sliced, green feathery tops, reserved and torn into small pieces, 2 scallions, finely chopped, 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Juice of 1/2 lemon, 3 tablespoons virgin olive oi, pepper, to taste
How to make
Bring the stock to a boil in a saucepan, add the quinoa, and simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until the germs separate from the seeds. Drain off the stock and discard, then spoon the quinoa into a salad bowl and let cool. Grate the zest from the membranes into the screw-top jar. Add the orange segments, fennel slices, scallions, and parsley to the quinoa. To make the dressing, add the lemon juice and oil to the screw-top jar, season with pepper, screw on the lid, and shake well. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss. Garnish with the feathery fennel tops and serve immediately.
