1/3 cup (75 mL) toasted sliced natural almonds*
1/4 cup (50 mL) lite soy sauce (sodium reduced), preferably naturally brewed

NOTE: Quinoa has a natural protective coating called saponin that must be rinsed off before cooking as it can give a bitter taste. As it cooks, the quinoa germ separates from the kernel creating tiny white rings. This is a sign that it is fully cooked.
*Natural almonds have the brown skin left on. Blanched almonds may also be used.
