Quinoa: Cranberries & Chickpeas

Quinoa with Cranberry & Chickpeas

Quinoa is packed with magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium, and fiber. Enjoy it in this dish from FITNESS advisory board member Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD.

• Add 1/4 cup dry quinoa and 1/2 teaspoon curry powder to 1/2 cup boiling water.
• Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
• Mix with 1/2 cup shredded carrots, 2 tablespoons dried cranberries, 3 chopped scallions (green onions), and 1/2 cup chickpeas.
• Serve, and enjoy!

I changed the above recipe & combined it with another. This recipe is SUPER EASY!! Here’s what I did to alter it: There’s 4 mouths to feed so I quadrupled the recipe above and added a 1 cup of diced peeled cucumber, 1.5 cups defrosted pre-cooked shrimp from Costco, creole seasoning (which I add to everything), and pepper.

I needed the extra protien & potassium for my healing sore muscles and this passed the taste test at my house! Enjoy!
