Eat Healthy-Quinoa with Watercress, Pears and Pomegranates

This dish combines quinoa with the delicious flavor combination of sweet pears, tart pomegranate seeds and peppery watercress.

1 cup quinoa

2 cups water

1 bunch watercress, stems removed and leaves sliced (about 1 1/2 cups packed leaves)

2 ripe pears, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch chunks

1/2 cup pomegranate seeds

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

2 tablespoons pomegranate juice

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar


Rinse quinoa under cold running water and drain.

Combine water and quinoa in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until quinoa is tender and all the water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.

Place quinoa in a large bowl with watercress, pears, pomegranate seeds, walnuts, juice and vinegar.

Stir to combine, then serve.
