Recipe for Quinoa with Nuts and Cranberries
- 1 cup of quinoa
- 1/2 cup of walnuts or sliced blanched almonds
- 1 cube broth stock
- 1 1/2 cups of boiling water
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 bay leaf
- 1/2 cup of dried cranberries
Over medium heat, stir and toast your choice of nuts until golden. Add the quinoa and toast a few more minutes until it begins to darken. Transfer the toasted quinoa and the nuts to a 2 quart saucepan and add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, covered, then reduce the heat to simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Fluff gently with a fork and serve.
This is the recipe from the back of the Earthly Delights Quinoa bag. I just added the possibility of using walnuts instead of almonds. Enjoy!
