    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    I got the idea for this from the Whole Foods recipe website, and, of course, added some extra spices to make it a bit more interesting. This was a great recipe to clean out the leftover quinoa, dried cranberries and almonds I had in my cubard! Quinoa is naturally wheat and gluten free and is a good source of complete protein for vegans and vegetarians. Be sure to rinse your quinoa really well under cold running water to remove any of the bitter coating from the outside! If you do not have garam masala, your favorite curry poweder will work too.

      Very good and easy to prepare. I used red quinoa. I did follow the original recipe which omits the coriander and garam masala.

      Followed recipe as written except for stirring the cranberries in with the almonds at the end of cooking time. Fast, easy and very good especially the next day as a filling for whole wheat tortillas. Thanks for posting! Reviewed for Veg Tag July.
