  • 1 cup Quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups Vegetable broth
  • 1 cup fresh Cranberries
  • Zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 1/4 cup fresh Parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Pecans, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine quinoa and water or vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until quinoa is cooked and liquid is absorbed.
  2. Fluff the cooked quinoa with a fork and let it cool to room temperature.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the fresh cranberries, orange zest, and orange juice. Let them sit for 10-15 minutes to allow the cranberries to soften.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, cranberry-orange mixture, chopped parsley, chopped pecans, and olive oil. Toss until well combined.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Chill the salad for at least 30 minutes before serving.
