1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup roasted slivered almonds, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Cooking Instructions

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the quinoa and cook for 12 to 15 minutes until the quinoa is tender. Strain and rinse well with cold water. Drain well.

2. Transfer the quinoa to a large mixing bowl. Stir in the olive oil, cranberries and almonds. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

To roast whole, slivered, chopped or sliced almonds: Spread in an ungreased baking pan. Place in a 350°F oven and bake 10 minutes or until golden brown and fragrant; stir once or twice to ensure even browning. Note that almonds will continue to roast slightly after removing from oven.
