A bonafide bacon and eggs girl, I was delighted by how much I enjoyed this healthy and easy to make breakfast dish. It's hard to say no with anything involving apples this time of year! The quinoa is brought to boil with the cinnamon, so it's bursting with sweetness and flavor after it simmers. And the addition of milk makes the quinoa similar to the consistency of oatmeal. I added raisins and dried apricots for even more flavor.
