Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water and quinoa in a saucepan. Bring to a 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.

  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, cover, and steam until tender, 2 to 5 minutes. Drain; fold into the quinoa mixture.

  • 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.

Cook's Notes:

Use frozen broccoli instead of fresh if preferred.

Substitute pecans for walnuts if desired.

Substitute lemon juice for the lime if desired.

I made it according to the directions except I added another cup of broccoli and doubled the garlic. It was ok. I probably won’t make it again. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

YUMMY! I make the recipe split it into two portions and take for my lunch for two days! I do take out the garlic - it's just too strong for me. Highly recommend! Read More
