      I loved this and quinoa is the only plant food that is a complete protein in and of itself. I had no almond extract so I used pure vanilla extract. This would also be great with raspberries, blackberries or sauteed apples and cinnamon. I suspect that previous reviewers may have made this using regular quinoa and not the flakes for cereal. Try it but don't use the regular quinoa! Thank you Ginny for posting!
