Tasty gluten-free recipe that's great as a side dish for any meat entree.


    1 tbsp. butter

    1 c. white quinoa

    2 c. vegetable broth

    2 tsp. garlic

    2 tbsp. fresh parsley

    1/2 tsp. fresh thyme

    1/2 tsp. sea salt

    black pepper to taste

    1 sweet onion

    1/4 c. dried cranberries

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add quinoa and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook about 15 minutes, or until quinoa is tender.

In a bowl, toss quinoa with chopped garlic, chopped parsley, chopped thyme, salt, pepper, finely chopped onion, and cranberries. Sprinkle with lemon juice, and serve.
