Quinoa with Toasted Walnuts, Apricots and Fat-Free Feta

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked Quinoa
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped dry apricot halves
  • 3/4 cup fat free feta
  • 1 cube chicken bouillon
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • salt and pepper to taste

Soak quinoa in cold water for 1/2 an hour. Once done, rinse thoroughly. In a pan, toast the walnuts lightly over medium heat for 5 minutes. Stir and roast the quinoa with the walnuts until it is dry and has started to turn slightly brown. Transfer the toasted quinoa and walnuts into a 2 quart saucepan. Add boiling water, bouillon cube, apricots, bay leaf, and cinnamon stick. Bring back to a boil, cover and turn heat down to low to simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and then add in fat-free feta. Mix well and season lightly with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
