Ingredients

Directions

Combine the quinoa and 2 1/2 cups water in a medium pot and bring the water to a boil. Reduce the heat so the water gently simmers. Cover and simmer 15 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat. Let the quinoa stand, covered, until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain the quinoa in a sieve and let cool completely. 

Just before serving, place the quinoa, chickpeas, preserved lemon, cranberries, cilantro, shallots, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl and toss to combine.
