Quick and Easy Quinoa Pilaf

Quick and Easy Quinoa Pilaf
as taught to me by Andrea Beaman :)
Everytime I make this dish it makes people smile! Plus, it looks really fancy and tastes unbelievable. Try it and you will be suprised.
Ingredients:
1/2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Onion peeled and diced (or use 2 garlic cloves)
1 small can of mushrooms (or use potatoes)
2 celery stalks
1 Tablespoon fresh sage (really folks I reccomend the fresh sage!)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt (regular salt is fine)
1 cup Quinoa
1/3 cup of dried cranberries
2 cups water
Directions:
saute onions or garlic with olive oil in a saucepan for 2-4 minutes. Add mushrooms or potatoes and cook for five more minutes. Add celery and sage together and cook for 2 minutes. Add quinoa and then 2 cups of water into the saucepan. This whole concoction will come to a aromatic boil. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.
This stuff is sure to make you smile!
