  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Cup Quinoa
  • 2 Cups Chicken Stock or Broth
  • ¼ Cups Dried Cranberries Craisins
  • 1 teaspoon Spiky Thyme


  • In a medium sauce pan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil on medium heat.
  • Measure out 1 cup of quinoa and add it to the pan. Gently stir quinoa and get a light coating of oil on each grain. Let the quinoa toast for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add chicken stock, dried cranberries, and spiky thyme to the pot. Gently stir to make sure spices and cranberries are evenly distributed.
  • Bring liquid to a simmer, and let cook, covered, on low heat for 25 minutes.
  • When the quinoa is finished, all of the chicken stock will be absorbed. Fluff quinoa with a fork and serve.
