- 2 cups dried quinoa
- Honey (about 1/3 of a cup, but I don’t actually measure)
- 1/3 cup nuts (Almonds work well)
- 2/3 cup dried fruit (chopped apricots and/or cranberries)
Put quinoa in 4 quart pot and cover with water by about two inches. Add a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for 20-30 minutes, until quinoa seeds have opened up and are tender. If necessary, more water can be added. Drain out any excess water using fine mesh strainer. Stir in honey, and top with fruit and nuts. This can be made ahead, portioned into Gladware-like containers, and reheated in the microwave for a quick breakfast. It lasts about a week in the refrigerator. Makes 4-5 servings.
