Wholesome Quinoa flavored with natural sweetness
2 cups of water
1 cup of Quinoa (I use the Bolivian kind, cream colored.)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried cranberries
** real maple syrup for extra sweetness, added to suit your tastes
** a touch of cinnamon, if desired
Boil water. Add Quinoa and stir. Then reduce heat to simmer and cover for 15-20 min. Quinoa is done when the ring (around each grain of Quinoa) starts to pull away. (Mine usually cooks up in 15 min.) Turn off the heat. Add the honey, raisins, dried cranberries. Stir and replace cover. Let sit for 5 min. Spoon into bowls and add maple syrup and cinnamon as desired. (I usually don't add the maple syrup, but my 10 year old son has a sweet tooth and says it's not sweet enough with just honey.) We've also added juice (such as pineapple juice) and it's good. If you get canned pineapple with 100% juice, use the juice to flavor the Quinoa.
