I just made this from Ellie's book and was very disappointed. So much so that instead of trying to eat it as is, I used the whole batch in a bread recipe. It's rising now.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add the quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer and rinse under the tap; put the rinsed quinoa in a saucepan with the water.
  2. Bring to a boil, then decrease heat to a simmer; cover and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the apple chunks and cranberries and continue to cook, covered over low heat, until the water is absorbed, about 10 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, toast the pecans in a dry skillet over med-high heat, stirring often, until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  5. Let cool, then coarsely chop.
  6. When the quinoa is cooked, stir in 1/2 cup of milk, 2 tablespoons honey, and the cinnamon; cook until the milk is heated through, about 1 more minute.
  7. Spoon the cereal into serving bowls and top with the toasted pecans and butter, if using.
  8. Serve with additional honey and milk to taste.
