Heat a 2-quart saucepan over medium flame. Add quinoa; toast, stirring constantly, until grains turn light brown and have a nutty fragrance, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; set aside.
Return saucepan to heat and add olive oil. Add onion, celery and zucchini. Cover and cook until vegetables soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in carrot juice; bring to a low boil. Stir in reserved quinoa, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until liquid has been absorbed and quinoa is tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
