    Laura Meehan's Note:

    Oddly, adapted from Men's Health magazine. Excellent for breakfast or dinner, and a good way to get the family to eat healthily. The juice adds a fair amount of sweetness; if it is still too bland for you, add some brown sugar. I used a "light" apple juice, though you can substitute a regular one.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      1. Rinse and drain the quinoa to wash off the bitter coating. Optional: toast the quinoa before cooking by putting it into a frying pan and shaking/stirring it for 10 minutes or so.
    2. 2
      2. Put the quinoa and juice in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover the pan, and simmer for up to 15 minutes (until the quinoa is translucent and the juice has been absorbed). Remove from heat and let rest two minutes.
    3. 3
      3. Stir in berries, mint, cinnamon, nuts, and nutmeg.

      Tasty but I found the dried mint a little bit odd in taste. I would omit it if I make this again. I used organic white quinoa which I toasted and I think that added good flavour to the dish, apple cider rather than low-carb apple juice, red pear for the fruit, no optional nutmeg, plus the rest of the ingredients.

      What an excellent twist on quinoa!! As if quinoa isn't already packed with enough nutrients, then you add walnuts and fruit! This MUST be the tastiest 'healthy' sweet treat ever :D Made for PAC Spring 2010.
