Sweet & Savory Sunday: Feta & Cranberry Quinoa with Spinach


Welcome to Sweet & Savory Sunday here on Everyday Enthusiasm!

Because it’s the weekend, the kind of food our bodies crave is something light, satisfying and healthy. And my feta cranberry quinoa with spinach fits the bill.

This recipe kind of just came from putting together ingredients in my apartment and having a whack at it. Results will vary. I am not responsible for your apartment going up in flames.
