Autumn Harvest Quinoa

Absolutely yummy, and very healthy too.  It's very easy to make and is very economical too.  Perfect for breakfast, a nice change from oatmeal.

I found the original recipe here and tweaked it quite a bit to make it work for us.  It gives you the option of making it in the crock pot too, which I didn't but will try sometime.  Here is my version:
1 C quinoa

1 C water
1 C apple juice/cider
pinch of salt
1 med apple, cored and diced
1 med pear, cored and diced
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t each of nutmeg and ginger
1/4 C each of honey and molasses

Combine quinoa, water, juice/cider, salt and spices and bring to a boil,  then reduce heat and simmer for 25-30 minutes.  Then add honey, molasses, apples and pears and continue to cook until all liquid is absorbed, approximately 5-10 minutes.  Sweeten with brown sugar to taste.  Makes 4 servings.
