Prepare the quinoa according to the directions on the package. Make sure to rinse it off before cooking it! Roast the brussels sprouts using this recipe.
Then mix together the brussels sprouts, quinoa, and pistachios. Add a little salt and pepper if it needs more flavor. Add a drizzle of EVOO if it need a little more moisture.
My pistachios were very salty so I didn't need to add extra salt but I did add some EVOO.
