In medium saucepan, boil quinoa in water and salt approximately 15-20 minutes over medium heat, until water is absorbed.
For efficiency, while quinoa is cooking, finely chop onion, ginger, mint, and coriander.
Heat oil in large stir-fry pan. Add ginger and onion, lightly brown. Add cinnamon and cloves, stir well. Add cooked quinoa, stir ingredients well. Remove from heat. Add black pepper and any additional salt to taste
Note: Dairy consumers may choose to add 1/2 cup plain yogurt to mixture when adding cooked quinoa.
Allow to cool and fluff with fork. If desired, serve topped with chopped blanched almonds.
