Directions

  1. Rinse Quinoa well to ensure your dish doesn’t have a bitter taste.
  2. In a small sauce pan, bring water and Quinoa to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low and simmer (uncovered) for 10-15 minutes (or until water is absorbed). You will know that the quinoa is done when all the grains have turned from white to transparent, and the spiral-like germ has separated.
  4. In a separate sauce pan, while Quinoa is cooking, melt soy margarine, then add raisins, nuts, cinnamon (and syrup, if desired) and simmer until raisins are plumped.
  5. When Quinoa is fully cooked, add fruit and nut mixture. Serve immediately.
