This was a tasty sub for the usual bowl of oatmeal! I knew that I liked quinoa as a savory dish, but this is my first time trying it in something sweet. I only had applesauce that was already mixed with some homemade cranberry sauce, but this worked out just fine because I was going to sub craisins for the raisins anyhow. For the pecans, I used a handful of some pecan-cashew nut crisp that I got at Costco (has cinnamon glaze with dried apple and dried peach bits mixed in). I would definitely make this again, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2014

  2. Divide cooked quinoa between four bowls then stir in apple sauce, raisins, and pour in warmed milk. Top with fresh cut apples and pecans and a dash of cinnamon.
