I think it would be safe to say that I love apple crisp. Peach crisp. Pear crisp. Any and all crisps. I love heating up crisp leftovers and having them for breakfast. But like most yummy things, they are full of not-so-healthy ingredients; butter, sugar, brown sugar, more butter.
So, I tried to recreate the flavors of a crisp in a better way. No butter. No sugar.
Breakfast Quinoa Apple Crisp serves 4-6 people
1 c quinoa
2 c water
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
2 apples, diced
1 TBSP honey OR agave
1/2 c sliced almonds
In a 2 qt sauce pan cook quinoa with the water, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Cover and let cook for 12-15 minutes. The last 5 minutes of cooking, add the diced apples and honey. Stir in completely, recover the pan and let cook until apples softened slightly, about 5 minutes. Serve with sliced almonds sprinkled on top.
