I'm taking my kitchen paperless (at least as far as non-bound recipes go) so welcome to my cookbook in a blog!

Fran's Quinoa

Feeds 3.

1/2 C quinoa
1 C chicken stock

1 Tb evoo
1 Tb lemon juice
1 Tb orange juice

1 clover garlic, finely minced
1 scallion, thinkly sliced
1 tsp fresh, grated ginger
1 Tb dried cranberries, chopped
2 Tb toasted pine nuts, chopped

shredded chicken

Rinse quinoa under cold running water and let drain.  Put in a pot with stock and salt.  Bring to boil and reduce and cover.  Simmer until stock absorbed, about 20 minutes.  Will look a little sticky, that's ok.

Mix second group in a small bowl.

Mix third group in a big bowl.

Let quinoa cool so as not to cook group 3, then toss together.  Salt and pepper.  Pour group 2 over, stir.  Good at room temperature.  Don't serve right away, leave time for flavors to blend.
