Quinoa salad with roasted pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
Toasted pumpkin seeds
Freshly diced tomato
Freshly chopped cilantro
Freshly chopped green onion
Cayenne pepper to taste
Sea salt to taste

I threw this together tonight and it was good.  I may want to find something else to add for taste.  I think some Bragg Nutritional Yeast might go well with it.  Any thoughts?  It was really good with some of my homemade whole wheat bread.

Pumpkin seeds are a great source of iron.  Iron is absorbed much better when consumed with vitamin C.  Tomatoes are a very good source of vitamin C, which is why I threw that in.  For more on that, go to
