"Delicious, filling, and comforting on a cold morning. It's really flexible, so substitute in your favorite nuts and fruit. Cashews and cherries are just my personal favorite."

I was confused before realizing the author probably meant HONEY rather than "Mix cherries, cashews, and ONION into the quinoa mixture" (though I could be wrong); I did try it with honey, not onion, and felt it was an easy, tasty alternative to other hot cereal breakfast dishes.

I really liked this! Would definitely make it often. My changes: almond milk instead of regular milk Toasted almond slices (just quickly done in a pan as the quinoa cooked) No vanilla Brown sugar, about 1 1/2 Tbs. Dried cranberries. I threw them in near the end of the cooking time to soften.

Very easy and tasty. I added Craisins and chopped pecans and a little agave to sweeten. Did not have creme fraiche on hand so mixed a cup of heavy cream and a tbs. of buttermilk a little vanilla and whipped it.
