Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. To prepare the walnuts, toss them in a small bowl with the olive oil, coriander and cumin. Spread in a pan and bake about 10 minutes, until the walnuts are aromatic and slightly browned. Cool to room temperature.
  2. If you have purchased quinoa from a bulk bin, rinse it with cold water and drain well. It is not necessary to rinse boxed quinoa if it says "prewashed."
  3. In a medium saucepan bring 2 1/2 cups water and the salt to a boil. Add the quinoa and return to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat and cover the pan. Simmer 15 to 20 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed and the quinoa is tender. Remove from heat, add the cumin, coriander and cinnamon, then stir and fluff with a fork to combine. Spread the quinoa on a platter or shallow pan to cool, stirring it occasionally with a fork.
  4. Transfer the quinoa to a large bowl and add the chickpeas, mint, scallions, orange juice, olive oil, lemon juice and orange zest. Stir and toss to combine, then top with the seasoned walnuts.
