    Quinoa and Apple Breakfast Cereal

    Advertisements
    This is a great, hot meal for breakfast, and it's really low cal/fat.
    And VERY delicious.

    Yields about 6 (smallish) servings
    1 cup(s) uncooked quinoa
    2 spray(s) cooking spray
    1 Tbsp butter, divided
    2 medium apple(s), chopped or diced (I prefer granny smith apples)
    2 cup(s) water, cold
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    3 Tbsp packed brown sugar
    1/4 cup(s) fat-free skim milk

    Soak quinoa in a bowl of water for 5 minutes.

    Meanwhile, coat a large skillet with cooking spray; set over medium heat. When skillet is hot, melt 1/2 tablespoon butter until it just starts to sizzle. Add apples and cook, turning occasionally, until apples are soft and begin to caramelize, about 5 to 10 minutes depending on personal taste; set aside

    Rinse and drain quinoa. Add quinoa and 2 cups of cold water to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat; boil for 1 minute. Reduce heat to low, cover pan tightly and allow quinoa to simmer for 10 minutes. When quinoa is cooked (a little tail will appear on each grain), remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Add remaining 1/2 tablespoon butter, cinnamon, sugar and milk; stir to combine and fold in apples. Yields about 2/3 cup per serving.

    I've never heard of quinoa being used as breakfast. Then again, I've really only had it in salads before. Its still pretty "foreign" to me. Is it similar to tofu in that it takes on the taste of the rest of the dish? I can never tell a distinct taste in salads. Enlighten, please!
