quinoa with prunes.

On the plane back from park city I saw this recipe in my magazine from here and wanted to try it...{excuse the pic, took it quickly before it got cold + running out the door}.


I've done a lot of combinations with quinoa but never like this.  It's a mix of tart and sweet and packed with protein.  Give it a try if you want to spice up your morning quinoa!


Ingredients:
1 cup water
½ cup quinoa
1 pinch nutmeg
1 tsp. grated ginger
⅓ cup chopped prunes
¼ cup rice milk

Directions:
Bring the water, quinoa, nutmeg, and ginger to a boil in a small pot. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Then stir in the prunes and rice milk. Cover the pot again and cook for another five minutes. {I ended up not using the ginger}.
