Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 cup quinoa
    2 cup chicken broth
    1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
    12 oz maple breakfast sausage
    4 green onions
    2 small apple, chopped
    1 cup chopped pecans
    3/4 cups dried cranberries

Directions

Rinse quinoa very well in a fine mesh strainer under cold, running water. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a small saucepan then add rinsed quinoa. Place a lid on top, then simmer until all the liquid has been absorbed and quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and cool slightly.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add sausage then brown and drain, if necessary. Add cooked sausage, green onions, chopped apple, almonds, and cranberries to the slightly cooled quinoa. Toss to combine then serve.

Serving Size:Makes 4 servings as a main dish or 8 servings as a side
