Sauteed Quinoa

*Note, the original inspiration for this came from here.


2 cups quinoa
4 cups water and 2 chicken boullion cubes (or 2 cups stock, 2 cups water, or all water)
2 Tbsp. butter
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/2 to 1 cup veggies (I like zucchini)
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup cranberries
1/4 cup slivered almonds
curry powder, cumin, cinnamon
salt and pepper

To make it:

Cook the quinoa: bring quinoa, water, boullion cubes and curry powder, cumin, and cinnamon (to taste--we like it heavy on the curry, lighter on the cumin, and lightest on the cinnamon) to a boil, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes until the liquid is mostly absorbed and the little curls have detached from the quinoa. Meanwhile, sauté the onion, and veggies, garlic, cranberries, and almonds in a big pan, then add the quinoa and sauté for a few more minutes. Pour a big glass of wine and enjoy!
