Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Breakfast



  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 apple thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 handful dried cranberries
  • 1/2 handful nuts ( I used almonds )
  • 1-2 teaspoons honey
  1.  Bring quinoa and water to the boil in a medium sized saucepan (I always toasted my quiona for 4 minutes in the pan before I add water to give it a nutty flavor). Reduce heat and gently simmer for 5 minutes. Add the apples, raisins and cinnamon. Simmer until the water has absorbed.
  2. While quinoa is cooking, toast the nuts in a dry pan for a few minutes over medium heat.
  3. Transfer to serving bowl and sprinkle cranberries and nuts over the quinoa. Sweeten with honey if desired
