  • 1/4 cup quinoa or 3/4 cup of cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup cooked broccoli can be steamed or roasted
  • 1 tbsp crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tbsp dried cranberries you don't have to measure - just sprinkle on as many as you like!


Cooking the Quinoa

  • Place the quinoa in a small saucepan with 1/2 a cup of water and bring to a boil on the stove.
  • When the water reaches a boil, turn the heat down to low and let simmer, covered, for 10-12 minutes or until the water is absorbed. Once the water is absorbed, remove from heat, fluff the quinoa with a fork and let sit covered for a few minutes

Cooking the Broccoli

  • If you need to cook the broccoli, fill a small saucepan with 1 cup of water. Place a small steamer in the water and place two chopped up florets of broccoli in the saucepan. Cover and turn the heat on high. Steam for 5-7 minutes or until fork tender

Assembling the Dish

  • Place cooked quinoa in a bowl, top with cooked broccoli. Sprinkle feta and dried cranberries over top
  • Drizzle your favourite dressing over top and serve
