Curried Quinoa Salad With Cranberries

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chef Dudo

You can only find quinoa in healthstores here. And not all quinoa products are (yet) available. But OK, when I found this recipe I was glad I could make it. Be sure to rinse the quinoa before boiling it. If you can't find quinoa you can use either couscous or bulgur.

This made a very nice lunch for me. I did toast the quinoa and then cooked it in veggie broth, as I believe that adds a lot of flavor to grains. I used only 1/3 of the soy sauce, and it was plenty salty for me. I do think that walnuts or some other nut would add to the flavor. Next time I would reduce the honey just a bit and add perhaps a bit more curry powder. A handful of cooked chickpeas added nutrition and made this more of an entree salad, and the chickpeas go well with the other ingredients.
