    Serves: 4 

    • 400ml water
    • 170g quinoa
    • 90g dried cranberries
    • 90g bite-size broccoli pieces

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:24min  ›  Ready in:34min 

    1. Combine water and quinoa in a saucepan. Bring to the boil; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until most of the water has been absorbed, about 8 minutes. Add cranberries; cook until plump and quinoa is tender, 4 to 5 minutes more. Transfer to a bowl.
    2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to the boil. Add broccoli, cover and steam until tender, 2 to 5 minutes. Drain; fold into the quinoa mixture.
    3. Mix olive oil, orange juice, lime juice and garlic together in a small bowl to make dressing. Pour over quinoa mixture; toss to combine. Sprinkle walnuts on top.

    Definitely a keeper. Made as is but had half an orange left so I added the chunks to a serving. YUM!!  -  31 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious, made as written. Great with a baked chicken breast. Lovely recipe...  -  04 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this as written (not using the substitutions in the notes) and we loved it. The dressing is delicate and light. The textures and flavors make this a wonderful addition to your meal. Thank you for your recipe.  -  09 Nov 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
