I made this a few days ago. Wanted to put it in the crockpot, but forgot, so when I got up I did it on the stove top just like I would brown rice. It was perfect! I made as written although I did add dried cranberries to it and ate with un-sweet Almond milk over it. It warmed me nicely with all the cold weather we have had. Thanks for a great, hearty breakfast! Next time I'm going to try the crock pot.

This was really delicious! I didn't have any barley, so I used 4 1/2 tbs bulgur wheat instead. I also left out the apple (not a big apple fan) and substituted dried cranberries and dates. I made this Sunday afternoon and have been reheating small portions every morning for an easy, quick breakfast! I add a splash of milk and a sprinkling of wheat bran and cinnamon chips when reheating and it's great!!

I had every intention of making this exactly like the recipe said the first time, but was out of bulgur wheat. I tripled the recipe (I have a big crockpot) and subbed whole white wheat for the bulgur. Cooked this for 7 hrs on low and it was perfect. Next time I'm going to rinse the quinoa before I put it in. I forgot I was supposed to. The kids loved it with a little sucanat for sweetening. I'm going to add this to our breakfast rotation - I love the variety of grains in here! Thanks for such a simple and good recipe!
