Cinnamon Apple & Raisin Quinoa

I am having a love affair with quinoa right now.  I hope it never ends.  It is so good for you.  This breakfast recipe is so scrumptious, healthy and hearty.

Serves 6

2 cups Quinoa
1 pinch salt
1/8 cup brown sugar
1 tbl ground cinnamon
1 apple, chopped
1/2 cup raisins
1 tbl maple syrup
1 tbl light cream

In a medium saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add the quinoa, apples, raisins and cinnamon with a pinch of salt. Once it returns to a boil, reduce the heat, cover and cook for about 15 minutes.

As the quinoa nears the end of its cooking time, stir in the sweetener. Remove from heat once it has finished cooking.

Serve with maple syrup and light cream.
