EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Once you're used to eating grains, you'll want to serve them often. Quinoa is high in protein, low in fat and cooks quickly, making it a great grain to use. The cranberries, orange juice and apple are reminiscent of fall. If you'd like to reduce the saturated fat, use canola oil instead of butter.
