Ingredients

    2 cups quinoa, rinsed
    4 cups chicken broth
    2 medium carrots
    3 stalks of celery
    1 yellow onion
    2 tablespoons cooking oil
    1 tablespoon parsley
    1 tablespoon basil
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    1/2 cup dried cranberries

Directions

Dice your vegetables into bite-sized pieces. Once diced, add them to a large pot to sauté over low-medium heat in some cooking oil until soft and translucent (about 10 minutes).

When the vegetables have been cooked, add in the quinoa, chicken broth, and all the seasonings. Bring the broth to a bubble, simmer for 10 minutes then cover with a lid, and turn off the heat. After 10 minutes, the quinoa should have absorbed all the broth. If not, turn the heat on medium to boil off the rest of the liquid.

At the end of cooking, fold in the cranberries while fluffing the quinoa. Transfer to a large dish and serve hot. It also tastes just as good reheated.
