½ cup quinoa

1 cup fresh peas or thawed frozen peas

1 cup chopped fresh parsley

¼ cup diced red onion

3 tablespoons lemon juice

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

pinch ground Aleppo pepper

kosher salt

 


 

1.Cook the quinoa in 1 cup boiling, salted water in a small saucepan, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes, until all the liquid has been absorbed. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook the peas until tender, about 2 minutes. Drain, submerge in ice water to cool quickly, and either leave them whole or mash them with a fork.

2. Combine the quinoa and peas with the parsley, onion, lemon juice, oil, mint, Aleppo pepper and a big pinch of salt in a medium bowl. Toss to combine and serve.
