    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.

    The only thing I changed was adding sunflower seeds in place of nuts at the end. I think I will also add a little extra broccoli next time. Very good.  -  07 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
