Organic Quinoa Pilaf with Cranberries and Almonds

IMG_1867

Cranberries add a sweetness to this gluten-free quinoa dish, which is good for vegans and vegetarians! I modified slightly this simple and healthy recipe from Whole Foods!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon organic extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 cup uncooked organic quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups organic chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup organic dried cranberries
  • 2/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted

Directions:

  1. In a medium pot, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Add onions and stir often until soft for 2 to 3 minutes. Stirring constantly, add the quinoa and “toast” for 1 minute. Pour in broth and add salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes with pot covered.
  3. Finally, add cranberries, cover and cook for another 10 minutes, until all liquid is absorbed. Toss in almonds and serve. Serves 6.
