Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

INGREDIENTS (Serves 4)

  • 1 cup quinoa (1 cup uncooked quinoa yields about 3 cups cooked!)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 small apple, with skin on for fiber and diced
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins (feel free to substitue with black raisins or dried cranberries)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

METHOD
Place quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer and rinse it with cold running water…this will help remove any bitter flavors. In a medium pot, bring water and quinoa to a boil and add salt. Reduce to lowest heat setting, cover and cook for about 20 minutes. Remove cover from heat and allow to stand for 5 minutes. Stir in the apples, cinnamon, raisins, and walnuts. Serve warm.
