Curry Quinoa With Almonds and Cranberries

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by bellaflora

Very simple, healthy and delicious meal. If you like quinoa, you'll love this. I've brought it to many potlucks; it always gets positive remarks. I sometimes leave out the red onion for those you don't like uncooked onions. Be creative with this recipe. You can add or subtract any veggies.

This is a real crowd pleaser! The basic recipe says the yield is 4 servings, however that must be as a large main dish. As a side it goes much farther. I doubled the recipe and made only two changes - I left out the red onion and used only one shallot (according to the grocery receipt it was about 2.5 oz). The group loved it! Leftovers reheat well, too!
