Serves: 3

  • 1/4 cup dried unsweetened cranberries
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/8 cup fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  1. Rinse quinoa well using a strainer under running water before cooking.
  2. In a medium sized pot, add 1 cup quinoa and 2 cups water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then cover and decrease to a gentle simmer.
