DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl, rinse quinoa several times with cold water.
  • In a large pot, bring the 2 cups of water to a boil, add the quinoa and simmer for 20 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed.
  • While quinoa is cooking, combine half of the honey, lemongrass, garlic and peppers in a small bowl.
  • Prepare the cranberries by whizzing them in a food processor with the remaining honey and lime juice until the cranberries are mere flecks and the mixture is a beautifully vibrant red.
  • When quinoa has cooked, stir in the lemongrass mixture and the cranberry mixture until combined.
  • Finally, add the mint, cilantro and red onion to the quinoa and mix thoroughly.
  • Set the quinoa salad in a covered bowl in the refrigerator for at least an hour to chill before serving.
