Category: Quick & Easy, Inexpensive, Healthy Recipes, Granolla & Porridge, Breakfast

 Ingredients List

  • 1 cup red quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds
  • ½ cup dried apricots, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup fresh ricotta


In a small saucepan, cover the quinoa with the water and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat until the water has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes. Lightly fluff the quinoa with a fork and cover it again.

In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the almonds and cook over moderate heat, stirring a few times, until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add the apricots, maple syrup, orange zest and cinnamon and stir well until heated through.

Add the quinoa to the skillet and stir gently to incorporate the almonds and apricots. Top each portion of quinoa with a tablespoon of ricotta and serve.
