Almonds, cranberries, and a hint of mint bring this nourishing bowl into play to satisfy you on the busiest days! Created by Corey Calliet, celebrity fitness trainer, on behalf of Almond Board of California.
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1/4 cup unsweetened Dried Cranberries
1/4 cup Sliced Natural Almonds
1/8 cup fresh basil
1 tablespoon avocado oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon lime juice
Rinse quinoa well using a strainer under running water before cooking.
In a medium sized pot, add 1 cup quinoa and 2 cups water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then cover and decrease to a gentle simmer.
Cook until the quinoa has absorbed all the water (approximately 10-15 minutes). Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes.
Add quinoa with all remaining ingredients to a medium sized mixing bowl and gently fluff with a fork until everything is well incorporated.
Garnish with additional basil leaves and enjoy!
