Cranberry Walnut Quinoa

Cranberry Walnut Quinoa

Quinoa is definitely not something that I ate when I was growing up, but now this seed makes regular appearances on my dinner table. It is versatile and works well with different flavors. It is also a good source of protein and other nutrients.

Cranberry Walnut Quinoa is a simple side dish with a lot of flavor. You can also serve it for breakfast. I enjoy it both hot and cold.

    I have tried Quinoa before and didn’t like it very much but this recipe sounds like it will add extra tasty ingredients.
