Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

  • 1 cup Red quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup Almond slivers
  • ½ cup Dried apricots, cut into 1/2″ 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.
