Gluten-Free Does Not Mean Flavor Free
I have eaten quinoa in many ways - it's like rice in some respects and like couscous in others. I like it because it's versatile. I have also made it as a hot cereal. I am sure I will continue making it in different ways and I hope you enjoy them all. This one is super simple. I use low sodium ingredients to control the amount of salt in my diet. You can always add more salt but it's hard to take it out.
2 cups quinoa, rinsed (I rinse it even if the package says it's rinsed. It tastes better.)
4 cups low sodium stock or broth (make sure it is gluten-free)
1/2 cup toasted, chopped almonds
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Salt and pepper to taste
Add all the ingredients into a rice maker and turn it on. Fluff it with a fork when done and serve. (If you have a small rice maker, just cut the recipe in half.)
