Method

Place quinoa in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Toast until fragrant, about 4 minutes.

Add 1 1/3 cups water and bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until all of the water is absorbed and quinoa is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

Set aside, uncovered, to let cool.

Meanwhile bring a pot of salted water to a boil.

Add the green beans and cook until al dente, about 2 minutes.

Drain and rinse under cold water.

In a large bowl, combine quinoa, green beans, lemon juice and oil.

Add sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, salt and pepper and toss to combine well.

Serve at room temperature.
