  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 cup quinoa

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

  • ½ cup dried cranberries

  • cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Bring chicken broth and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and broth has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer quinoa to a bowl.

  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.
