This keeps well for 3-4 days. I like to make up a batch on the weekend for lunches during the week.

Prep:
15 Min
Cook:
30 Min
Method:
Stove Top

Ingredients

1/2 c
quinoa, raw ( can use red or white, i like to use both.)
1 c
chicken broth or water
1 c
each diced apples and pears. (sprinkle with fruit fresh to keep from turning brown.)
1/4 c
dried cranberries
1/4 c
toasted silvered almonds
1 Tbsp
pomegranate seeds (optional)

Step-By-Step

1Soak quinoa in cold water for about 5-10 minutes, rinse and drain well in fine mesh strainer. Bring chicken or water to a boil, add quinoa, cover and simmer approximately 30 min. or until tender and liquid is absorbed. I cook my quinoa in a rice cooker, works like a charm. Cool quinoa to room temperature.
2Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Drizzle with about 1 TBS of my Apple Cider Vinaigerette. Can also use other bottled fruit based vinaigrettes but the Apple Cider is best.
