Satisfied is how I feel, when I eat this cranberry walnut quinoa. The dish is flavorful and packed with nutrition.
Quinoa is definitely not something that I ate when I was growing up. However, these days this seed makes regular appearances on my dinner table.
It has become a pantry staple, so I always keep it on hand.
The dish 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.
