  4. Once it's boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered with the lid slightly ajar, for 12-13 minutes.
  5. Rinse and drain the cranberries.
  6. Set aside.
  7. Risse and drain fresh spinach.
  8. Drain, chop into bite-sized apple, and add to the quinoa along with the pomegranate and cashew.
  9. Place quinoa in the fridge while you prep your dressing.
