Cranberry Cinnamon Quinoa

This recipe is ridiculously good. I found it on the back of an Earthly Choice quinoa bag.


  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1.5 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries


In a skillet, stir and cook the almonds over medium heat for about 3 minutes, or until golden and fragrant. Add the quinoa and stir for another minute, to lightly toast it.

Transfer the almonds and quinoa to a 2-quart saucepan and add the boiling water, salt, cinnamon stick, bay leaf, and dried cranberries. Bring to a boil, covered. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
