Rinse quinoa and cook according to package directions. Typically you would bring 2 cups of water to a boil, add the quinoa, turn down the heat and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes. If there is any water left, drain in a fine mesh sieve. Let it cool.
Dice tomatoes and mince shallot. Add shallot into the oil while you prepare other ingredients.
Chop parsley or defrost 2 cubes.
Transfer cooled quinoa to a large bowl. Add the tomatoes, shallot/oil mix, lemon juice, allspice and salt and pepper. Combine and mix in the parsley. Top off with pine nuts, goat cheese - or both!
