Recipe for Quinoa with Toasted Almonds & Dried Cranberries

Recipe Ingredients:
1 cup  quinoa
1/2 cup  slivered almonds
1 tsp  vegetable oil
1 1/2 cup  boiling water
vegetable bouillon cube
1/2 tsp  salt
cinnamon stick
bay leaf
1/2 cup  dried cranberries

Cooking Directions:
1.  Soak the quinoa for 15 minutes in cold water. Stir the quinoa with your hand and pour off most of the water. Drain the excess water through a fine mesh strainer. Shake the quinoa dry in the strainer, then set the strainer aside over a bowl or pitcher.

2.  Heat a wide bottomed pan on medium heat and add the oil. Stir and toast the slivered almonds until golden, then remove from the heat.

3.  Add the quinoa. Stir and toast until dry. Add the boiling water, veggie cube, salt, bay leaf, cinnamon stick and dried cranberries.

4.  Bring the mixture back to a boil, cover, and turn the heat to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes or until all the water is absorbed. Remove from heat and allow to sit five minutes with the lid on.

5.  Fluff gently with a fork and serve.
