2 cups quinoa, rinsed and drained
4 cups water
1/2 stick butter melted and cooled
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
How to Make It
In a medium pot over high heat, bring the quinoa, water and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt to a rolling boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to low, and simmer until the quinoa has fully absorbed the water, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat.
In a separate bowl, mix the butter, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract, then pour over the cooked quinoa and mix well.
