Looking for a few easy side dishes to add to your repertoire this holiday season? This protein-packed quinoa, flecked with cranberries and pecans, should definitely be one you consider.
Quinoa is easy to make (easier than rice, if you can believe it!) and when flavored with the orange peel, cranberries and nutty pecans, it becomes a pretty dish that complements many traditional holiday main dishes.
When the broth has been absorbed and you see a line around the pan, stir in the cranberries and pecans. Sprinkle a little fresh thyme over the top for color, if desired.
