Quick golden quinoa

This little pilaf is super quick, pretty and of course yum.
1 c. quinoa-well rinsed or soaked and rinsed
pinch of sea salt
4 cardamom pods
2 cloves
12 almonds
1/2 plus a pinch turmeric
2 T dry apple juice sweetened cranberries chopped
2 1/4 c water

Put everything in a little iron pot and bring to a boil. When it is boiling rapidly reduce to low heat and simmer 15 minutes. Let it stand uncovered then fluff and serve. Mmmm.
