½ cup of quinoa
1 apple; ½ lemon
Cook the quinoa according to the packet instructions, but this is generally to rinse the quinoa in a sieve and then add 50% more water than quinoa i.e. for 1 cup of quinoa you’d add 1.5 cups of water. Then bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
As you’re reaching the end of the 15 minutes, grate the apple in and cook for a further 30 seconds, grate in the zest of the lemon and squeeze a little lemon in to taste. Now serve in bowls with a sprinkle of cinnamon and voila! Delicious and warming.
Note: if you want to add raisins (and I only recommend this while transitioning) then throw them in just before you grate in the apple.
