Quinoa and Currant Salad

I didn’t expect this to really be a standout so I never bothered to take a picture of it. My husband chided me as he wolfed the last bits of it. When will I ever learn?

3 cups of beef broth
1.5 cup uncooked quinoa
½ cup currants
2 tbs of minced mint
Juice of ½ a lime
A good bit of pepper
Salt to taste


Bring broth to broil and throw in qinoa and currants, let cook to package instructions (mine called for 12 minutes), let cool. Add mint, lime, salt and pepper. Let stand in the refrigerator for 45 minutes to an hour.

I heard that quinoa is healthy, so I expect to see an "updated" post on this recipe again with a picture! ;) I too am trying to eat healthier!

I still haven't tried quinoa yet. I keep eyeing it in the bulk food section and wondering what I'd make with it. This sounds great! I'm getting healthier fortunately, thanks for asking. Got some updates on my blog. The big problem was the worst ear infection the doctor had ever seen!
