About the Recipe

Red, Green and Quinoa is a mix of fresh fruit and vegetables, nutty quinoa and pecans, and sweet dried fruit, all of which will make your taste buds dance!


  • 1 cup Uncooked Quinoa
  • 1 whole Pomegranate; seeds removed
  • 1 stalks Leek, cleaned and sliced into rings
  • 1/2 cup Pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1/4 cup Raw Organic Honey


  1. Bring quinoa and liquid to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  2. Cut pomegranate in half and take out all the seeds. Rinse and set aside.
  3. Add leek, pecans and dried cranberries into a large bowl. Mix.
  4. Add pomegranate seeds to bowl. Mix.
  5. Add quinoa to the mixture and drizzle in honey.
  6. BONUS TIP: When taking the pomegranate seeds out, do so in a bowl of water so you don't get the juice (which stains) all over you!
