Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup of quinoa
  • 1 medium-sized finely chopped red onion
  • 1 de-seeded pomegranate
  • 2 cups of finely chopped parsley
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of cranberries dried
  • 1 diced unpeeled red apple optional
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil for cooking the quinoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1 dash of freshly grated black pepper
  • To make the dressing:
  • 1/4 cup of pomegranate molasses or a little less
  • 1/4 cup of virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice

Instructions

  • To cook the quinoa, strain it through a fine-mesh strainer, rinse with cool water for 2-3 minutes, and rub with your hands to remove the bitter flavor
  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat, then add the quinoa and stir for a few seconds.
  • Bring the water and salt to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and leave to simmer for 20 minutes, or until the water is absorbed, and the spirals begin to pull away from the seeds.
  • Remove from the heat and fluff the quinoa with a fork.
  • Set aside to let cool completely.
