Quinoa Pilaf With Cranberries

25 mins (prep 5, cooking 20)

I got the idea for this from the Whole Foods recipe website, and, of course, added some extra spices to make it a bit more interesting. This was a great recipe to clean out the leftover quinoa, dried cranberries and almonds I had in my cubard! Quinoa is naturally wheat and gluten free and is a good source of complete protein for vegans and vegetarians. Be sure to rinse your quinoa really well under cold running water to remove any of the bitter coating from the outside! If you do not have garam masala, your favorite curry poweder will work too.
