Recipe by Christine
"Delicious, filling, and comforting on a cold morning. It's really flexible, so substitute in your favorite nuts and fruit. Cashews and cherries are just my personal favorite."

I was confused before realizing the author probably meant HONEY rather than "Mix cherries, cashews, and ONION into the quinoa mixture" (though I could be wrong); I did try it with honey, not onion, and felt it was an easy, tasty alternative to other hot cereal breakfast dishes.
Very easy and tasty. I added Craisins and chopped pecans and a little agave to sweeten. Did not have creme fraiche on hand so mixed a cup of heavy cream and a tbs. of buttermilk a little vanilla and whipped it.
I really liked this! Would definitely make it often.
almond milk instead of regular milk
Toasted almond slices (just quickly done in a pan as the quinoa cooked)
Brown sugar, about 1 1/2 Tbs.
Dried cranberries. I threw them in near the end of the cooking time to soften.
Just made this recipe for the first time! It is really good! I love that I just stumbled upon another, more healthy, protein-rich breakfast :) I am a breastfeeding mom, so I did not sweeten it with honey -- I used brown sugar, so it was basically identical to how I would make oatmeal (cinnamon and brown sugar!). I actually didn't add any fruit or nuts this time, because I didn't have any on hand, but I know they will be a great addition!! Thanks for the awesome breakfast recipe!!
