Quinoa With Ham and Cranberries

Quinoa With Ham and Cranberries created by anniesnomsblog

Quinoa...where have you been all my life? This grain is a new discovery for me, and a wonderful one at that. I like to have foods high in protein, and this one is packed. This recipe can be used as a side, or as a meal. Very tasty. One of the best things about this wholesome concoction is that it is equally as good cold as it is warm. The ham can be substituted with chicken or shrimp for a change of taste. See recipe #16399 for toasting instructions.

    This was delightful. It was the perfect lunch to make with leftover honey ham from Easter. It was fresh and light and protein-packed. We added cous cous and basil.

    This was amazing! I'm kind of hit/miss with quinoa.. sometimes I really don't like it, but I LOVED this! The cranberries added the perfect amount of tart.yet slightly sweet flavour to this dish; definitely be making it again!
