“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.”

Directions

  1. Bring quinoa, water, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and has absorbed the water, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat.
  2. Mix cherries, cashews, and honey into the quinoa mixture; top with blackberries and creme fraiche.

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.
