Five-Spice Quinoa with Toasted Almonds
Five-spice powder is a seasoning that usually includes star anise, cinnamon, licorice root, fennel, and black or Sichuan pepper. It plays well against the slight nuttiness of quinoa, a grain that is rich in protein. Toasting the quinoa in a little oil adds a pleasing nuance of flavor. If the quinoa is sold in bulk or loose, I recommend rinsing it. If it’s in a package, you may omit this step.
