This Quinoa Curry Salad is one of my newest recipes I created. The curry flavor mixed with the sweetness of the cranberries and the tanginess of the lemon juice and zest all blend in together very nicely.
Quinoa is one of my favorite go to’s because of the health benefits. Botanically Quinoa is not classified as a grain, although nutritionally it is considered a whole grain. Quinoa is naturally gluten-free and contains iron, B-vitamins, magnesium phosphorus, potassium, calcium, vitamin E, and fiber. It is one of only a few plant foods that are considered a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids.
Most of the time I buy the organic quinoa in the frozen section at Trader Joe’s. However, you can buy the kind you cook over the stove as well.
