Cook time: 15 min
125 mL (½ cup) uncooked quinoa
250 mL (1 cup) unsweetened fortified plant-based beverage or lower fat milk

1 mL (¼ tsp) ground cinnamon
½ mL (⅛ tsp) ground nutmeg
20 mL (1 ½ tbsp) honey

60 mL (¼ cup) raisin
Thoroughly rinse quinoa using a strainer and place in a small pot with a tight-fitting lid.
Stir in milk, water, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, and apple.
Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed.

For added fiber, stir in some chia seeds!
