I have been on a serious quinoa kick lately. The little pearly delights are so easy to make and I have been meaning to pair the grain with my other fall time love – squash.
Luckily I had a handful of autumn ingredients on hand, so I got to work.
plus two diced apples – I used Honeycrisp – to a pot.
While the quinoa,apples, and apple cider mixture is coming to a boil grab whatever delicious mix-ins you have on hand – I went for cranberries and walnuts.
Once quinoa and cider have come to a boil and you’ve brought down the heat, add remaining ingredients to a pot with a dash of cinnamon.
Allow cranberries to plump up and quinoa to soak up all of the cider. This dish is delicious warm or cold!
We were feeling particularly festive so we stuffed an acorn squash full of the cooked autumn infused quinoa and baked away!
What recipe screams autumn to you? Have you experimented with quinoa yet?
