A delicious and easy quinoa (naturally gluten free and a good source of complete protein) pilaf with raspberries, parsley, toasted hazelnuts, and dried barberries. It is great on its own as a meatless meal or as a colourful side with some roasted chicken or smoked fish.

The ingredients esp the berries are expensive for me. So I don't buy. Of course nice addition for this pretty dish.

Dried cranberries and fresh raspberries.. Yummy! Looks and sounds delicious :)

Mother Rimmy 30/9/15 14:22

I had to do a Google search to find out what barberries are. I can't say I've seen them in the stores. It sounds like dried cranberries might make an alternative if I couldn't find them. Delicious recipe for quinoa!

Angie, this is a pilaf I would enjoy a lot. I like all the berries that go into it. So interesting with the barberries.
Beautiful as usual. I have been going through your recent post and have to say you make such wonderful food. Got busy with visitors and trying to catch on my favorite blogs.
Hope you are doing well.

It's always good to have a little fruits in a savory pilaf! I hardly add fruits though - the closest I have done is to add dried fruits e.g raisins to savory pilaf.

Reeni 6/10/15 03:17

I never heard of a barberry before Angie! Would love to try them! This is so enticing with those bright, beautiful raspberries peeking out at me!

Herbs Spices and Tradition 8/10/15 02:03

This is bright, colourful and healthy quinoa pilaf.

Unknown 8/10/15 05:30

This is by far the most amazing pilaf I have seen, I love your ingredient combos all the time, those raspberries are perfect in here and the pop of color is stunning!

Couscous & Consciousness 9/10/15 06:58

This looks so pretty, and healthy too. I have some dried barberries in my cupboard needing to be used up - now I just need to wait for fresh raspberries to come into season - about another month I'm thinking :-)

Geri Saucier 10/10/15 03:14

A beautiful dish. You introduced me to barberries. I have never heard of them. Must see where I can buy some:)

Emma @ Bake Then Eat 10/10/15 12:43

This is the perfect dish for me, it will definitely be finding its way into my lunchbox very soon!

Koko 11/10/15 21:05

This looks amazing! What are barberries though? I have never heard of them!
