  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 medium tart apple, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (plus additional for topping)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

How to make this recipe

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the milk up to a near simmer. Stir in the quinoa and reduce the heat to low.

  2. Gently simmer for about 20 minutes or until the quinoa is tender, stirring frequently and making sure to scrape the bottom of the pot to keep the milk from burning. Remove from the heat.

  3. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the apple slices and cook for 2 minutes or until soft. Stir in the water, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook for an additional 2 minutes or until the liquid thickens.

  4. Divide the quinoa between the serving bowls and spoon the apples and any remaining juices on top of the quinoa and serve.
