my favorite kinds of dishes are the ones that taste amazing but take almost zero effort. i was really digging this quinoa cranberry pilaf side dish i brought to a friendsgiving celebration last month – the quinoa was smooth, the apples and onions were perfectly soft, and the cranberries offered a tart bite against the sweetness of the cinnamon and five-spice.

/i n g r e d i e n t s/
1 cup quinoa
2  1/4 cups water
1/2 a yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup fresh cranberries
1 pink lady apple, chopped
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp chinese five-spice
raw or toasted pecans for topping

/p r o c e s s/
bring quinoa and water to a boil.
add onion, cranberries, apple, and spices and reduce heat to simmer. cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, until quinoa is done and water is absorbed.
place in a 9×9 baking dish or other small serving dish and top with pecans. serve warm.
