  2. Stir walnuts and cranberries through the quinoa; add feta cheese and gently stir.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use water to boil the quinoa if you'd prefer.
  • Pecans or almonds are fine in place of the walnuts.

This was my first attempt so I didn't change anything. The feta threw me off a bit but it tastes pretty good. I like walnuts and dried cranberries which definitely gives it a nutty and sweet fla...

Added dried chopped onion, garlic powder and basil to the quinoa as cooking. Mixed all ingredients, 1tbsp of the feta brine and chopped scallion. YUMMY!

This makes a great addition to my lunch box. 1/2 cup is 245 calories. I think I'll try it with apple next week instead of cranberry just to mix things up.
