Was tasty! I used dried cranberries instead of currants, which were too hard to find for me. Used fresh squeezed oj and zest. Will definitely make again. Used red quinoa.

Awesome recipe! Our guests kept complimenting me on this throughout dinner. I didn't add onion and instead added some sweetened cranberries at the end. Delicious, thanks!
