Ingredients

    1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
    1 cup Apple Juice
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp allspice
    Pinch of kosher salt
    1 large ripe pear cubed
    1/2 oz pecans chopped (14g)
    1/2 oz raisins (14g)
    quirt of lemon juice (approx 1/2 tsp)

Directions

In a small sauce pan add the quinoa, water, cinnamon, allspice and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat then lower to a simmer and cover. Cook for about 12-15 minutes until all the water is absorbed.

While the quinoa is cooking chop the pear, pecans and raisins. Add them to a bowl with a quirt of lemon juice.

Once the quinoa is done, pour over the pears/peacan/raisin mixture. Warm from the stove it will begin to melt the pears and plump up the raisins.

Serve and Enjoy!!
