1 cup quinoa
1/2 cup slivered blanched almonds
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 vegan vegetable bouillon cube
1/2 tsp salt
1 cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup dried cranberries

Soak the quinoa 15 minutes in cold water
Stir the quinoa with your hand, pour off most of the water and drain through a fine mesh strainer
Shake dry in the strainer, then set the strainer over a bowl or pitcher
Heat a wide bottomed pan on medium heat and add the oil
Stir and toast the sliced almonds until golden, then remove from pan
Add the quinoa. Stir and toast until dry and turning color
Add boiling water, veggie cube, salt, bay leaf and cinnamon stick, and dried cranberries
Bring back to boil, cover, turn the heat to simmer, cook for 10 minutes or until all the water is absorbed
Remove from heat and allow to sit five minutes with the lid on
Fluff gently with a fork and serve

This quinoa stove top casserole cooks quickly because the almonds and quinoa are roasted, and then boiling water is added. The quinoa should be drained well before roasting.

Low Fat, Gluten Free: Even though quinoa has more fat than most grains, and almonds have fat - because there's just a dab of oil, this is still a low fat, healthy recipe.

But not boring! Quinoa has lots of flavor, and the veggie cube, cinnamon & bay leaf, almonds and cranberries add even more flavor. And, of course quinoa is always gluten free.

Quinoa Almond Cranberry Casserole is our favorite recipe. Thanks.- Linda B.

Good recipe! Didn't have almonds so used cashews and loved it. This is a keeper! - Anne P.
