1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup quinoa
about 1/4 cup of spelt, kamut, rye, etc. flakes
sunflower seeds (1/2 a handful?)
1/2 apple or raisins or pear or a combo
hemp nut seeds (hemp hearts)
Bring the water to boiling. Put in the quinoa and reduce heat to minimum. Set timer for 13 mins (this is when I usually go have a shower!). If the quinoa looks like the outside circumference has separated from most of the grains, put in the flakes, fruit & cinnamon. Just a sprinkling of cinnamon. You will get to know how much of each, or if you want to add something else, as you continue to make the recipe.
Simmer until all the water has been soaked up...you may have to add more water for the flakes and you may have to turn the heat up slightly. Spoon into bowl(s) and sprinkle with hemp seeds and vegan maple syrup. Yum!
