MICROWAVE vegetable stock in a medium microwave-safe bowl for about 4 minutes on high power until stock is very hot. Carefully pour or ladle stock over vegetables. Carefully unfold bag opening.

To Toast Pine Nuts
To toast pine nuts, place in a dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Remove quickly from heat when browned, as they will burn easily.
