Red Quinoa With Pistachios

My first time using quinoa, I'm embarrassed to say, but it most certainly won't be my last... particularly if future endeavors with it taste THIS good. I'm so sold on this recipe, I can hardly stand it! Nabbed from Epicurious with no shame, I urge you to give it a try. I upped the shallots from one to one LARGE or two small, and I increased the parsley from 3 Tbsps to probably 5. We actually had just this for dinner with pita bread and a little garlic hummus and were completely satisfied. No meat necessary! I suppose you could eat this cold as a salad too, but I have yet to try it.
