Apple and Berry Scented Quinoa

Cooking with Quinoa!
I was enlisted to create a healthy breakfast cereal that kids would actually eat and that Mom’s could easily afford and make on a busy morning. This recipe is high in complete protein, contains fresh fruit, and the added protein of walnuts. Tested on lots of kids, this vegan breakfast recipe has won raves every time!

Makes 3–4 Servings

Ingredient List: 
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed well
  • 2 cups unfiltered apple juice
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 1 pint fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans (or other nuts)
Step By Step Instructions: 

Place quinoa and apple juice in a sauce pan over medium heat. When the quinoa boils, add salt and cinnamon, cover, reduce heat, and bring to a boil. Cook over low heat for 15–20 minutes, until the quinoa has absorbed all the juice.

While the quinoa is hot, stir in the berries and nuts. Serve hot.
