Directions

  1. Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the apple, and sprinkle with salt, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Stir in the almonds; cook and stir until the apple is hot and beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in the almond milk and half-and-half cream; continue cooking until hot. Stir in the hot quinoa, and cook a few minutes before serving.

This was exceptional! We put all the ingredients into a crockpot (minus the milk as we used dairy not almond) and cooked on low overnight. The next morning we stirred in some warmed milk and enjoyed!

I omitted the butter, maple syrup and almonds. Instead I fried the apples in a vegetable oil sprayed pan, added raisins for sweetness, and used pecans as the nuts. I also used soy milk instead of almond milk. This is a nice, grainy kind of cereal that brings out the taste of the cinnamon flavored apples. I'll be making this again!

Excellent! Can also substitute coconut milk. I have also reduced maple syrup and added some raisins.
