3 cups water

1 tsp tamari soy sauce

Add water, soy sauce and rosemary. (If using fresh peas, add them now.) Bring contents to a boil, cover and simmer 15 minutes. Mean while, roast walnuts in 350°F oven for 5 minutes. When quinoa is cooked, turn off heat and mix in walnuts and frozen peas. Let sit an additional 10 minutes and serve.
