Middle Eastern Quinoa & Apricots

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Jozieo

This is a sweetish healthy side dish, or vegan main dish. Perfect for Thanksgiving. I use a packaged mix of the 3 grains but I suppose you can use what ever grains you like. I am going to try this with brown rice.

Excellent flavors. I used the Harvest Grain mix from Trader Joe's and a mixture of currants, dried blueberries and raisins. It came out great with many requests for the recipe.
