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

Ingredients:

1 cup quinoa

2 cups water

2 cups baby arugula

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

Method:

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 arugula, pears, pomegranate seeds, walnuts, juice and vinegar. Stir to combine, then serve.
