Many people these days will be happy to see quinoa on a holiday table. Being gluten-free, high in protein and named a superfood, all your guests will welcome a bit of quinao for a festive dinner.

The curry powder gently scents the dish, offering a beautiful golden hue, while the cranberries offer a sweet and tart bite, with the almonds lending a nice crunch.
