Granny Smith apple - peeled, cored, and chopped
agave syrup, or to taste
I'm always looking for new ways to use healthy quinoa and love this one for breakfast. I substituted the calories from the apple juice for brown sugar:) I used all water to make quinoa and 2 tsp. brown sugar instead of agave. I thought 1 tsp cinnamon might be a little much for this little recipe so I went with 1/2 tsp. Thank you for a nice quinoa breakfast recipe. Next time, I'm gonna try a banana and maybe 1/4 c. blueberries (a staple in my freezer from Costco) combo.
It was missing something - a little plain. I think the adding of some half and half could help.
Not great, but not bad, might be better with maple syrup on top.
There was not enough liquid when it was time to add the apples - I added at least 1/3 cup more water and apple juice to cook the apples. I also added raisins just for fun. I agree with others that it is a little bit bland. I also think there was too much cinnamon. I would cut it in half if I try it again.
needs more liquid than recipe stated and longer cooking time. Otherwise not bad.
good, very basic.I would add dried fruit
I agree about adding more liquid. The base recepie is good but I did tweak it a little. I added a handful of fresh cranberries while the quinoa and apple juice were boiling and then added some crushed pecans and a little pumpkin pie spice and dialed back on the cinnamon. It was delicious!
Have been making this every day for breakfast since Thanksgiving (it's Sunday now!) and love it. I've made it quite a few times over the past year or so too, and I keep coming back to it. The recipe is perfect in timing and ingredients in my experiences, though I normally put in half the apple at the first 8 minute mark to let it warm up and start sweating before things dry up. Then I put half #2 in along with a teaspoon of sugar and stir things up real well. By the time the second 10 minutes has gone by, the apples have gotten incredibly soft and most of the juice has been absorbed by the quinoa or boiled out. I'm actually wondering if people that are having problems with it getting too dry are simply letting it sit at too high a temperature. On my electric stove I start at 7/10 and lower it to 3.5/10 when it boils, and cover it.
