Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 cup Water
    1/2 cup Ocean Spray Pomegranate Craisins
    1/2 tsp Salt (optional)
    1 cup Quinoa
    3 tbsp chopped Scallions
    1 tbsp Olive Oil
    1 tbsp Lemon juice

Tips

I like to cook my quinoa with stock, omitting the salt. Pine nuts, pecans, and almonds are all great additions for a bit more texture and flavor profile.

For gluten free cooking, make sure your ingredients are sourced from a certified gluten free factory/company.


Directions

1. Toast quinoa over medium heat.
2. Add water, craisins, and salt. Bring to a boil.
3. Reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and let rest 5 minutes.
4. Stir in scallions, olive oil, and lemon juice.
