Susan’s Apple, Almond, Curried Quinoa

Susan makes enough of this to last her a week - it's great cold! Make it up on Sunday, divide into containers, and take it to work for a deliciously healthy lunch! The nutrition facts were created at Calorie Count!

Apple, Almond, Curried Quinoa
Serves 6


1 cup Quinoa
1 Apple (seeded and cut into little pieces, like 1/2 inch squares)
2 t Dried Onion Flakes
1/4 cup Slivered Almonds - toasted for crispness - (a small handful)
1 t Curry Powder (I use boring old regular spice aisle kind, you might like more curry powder when you make it, so taste!)
1/4 cup Dried currants (a small handful)
2 T Honey (to taste)
Pinch of Saffron (for color, so just use a smidge)
6 Cardamon Pods, whole


Get water boiling and add honey/onion/curry powder/cardamon pods/saffron/ - then add quinoa and cook until done.

Find and remove cardamon pods (they were just for flavor and I hate biting into one of those pods!). Let cool a bit.

Add apple and almond and mix well.

Dress with a bit of salt and lemon


Make a mixture of olive oil/lemon and salt and drizzle that and mix it in.

Adjust the seasonings and amount of almonds and currants to your taste.
