    Vegetarian Hostess's Note:

    A Middle Eastern delight with dried apricots and dates enhanced with the aromatic flavors of cinnamon, cardamom and ginger giving this quinoa a rich warm and slightly sweet flavor. In fact it is sweet enough for a dessert, but I suggest it served with a curried vegetable dish. With this dish you are transported with flavors from around the world into your home. This recipe has been adapted from Martha Stewarts, Cinnamon Scented Couscous.

      I used a fresh apricot to avoid the nitrates, added some raisins. Make extra almonds they do make the recipe. We sprinkled a little browm sugar to make it desert-ish. Yummm.

      Delicious flavours. I used soft Parnoosh dates from Iran, freshly ground cardamom, sea salt, no oil as I didn't see that part, plus the rest of the ingredients. It is important to wash your quinoa very well rubbing it between your fingers. The toasted almonds made this dish in my opinion. I may make this again.
