Coconut and cranberry quinoa

This coconut and cranberry quinoa is very similar to this one from 101 Cookbooks. As always, the 101 Cookbooks version looks amazing, but we rarely have fresh blackberries in the house, and nearly always have dried cranberries.


Coconut and cranberry quinoa


  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed thoroughly
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut, unsweetened
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • maple syrup, to taste


  1. Combine milk, water, quinoa and cinnamon in a saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until most of the liquid is absorbed.
  4. Add the cranberries, coconut and pecans.
  5. Serve in bowls and drizzle with a tiny bit of maple syrup if you’re looking for a little extra sweetness.
