For times when you want the real thing...but also don't want the real thing.

Quinoa is a micro-grain that has a soft nutty flavor--it works beautifully with diced apples, apple cider, and all the necessary spices, baking up into a texture-rich "spoonable" faux apple pie. I topped ours with vanilla Greek yogurt, but whipped cream would have been amazing, too. This recipe serves 2-3, conservatively, so double if you want to feed more people. YUM.

Notes: Butter is unsalted.


Ingredients: 1 large apple, 1/2 cup quinoa, 1 cup apple cider, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ground ginger, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, 1/8 tsp. sea salt, 2 tbsp. brown sugar, 1tbsp. butter, vanilla yogurt for serving (optional).

Serves 2-3.

1. Preheat and prep: Preheat the oven to 375* F. Peel and dice the apple into small pieces. Add to a small baking dish (7 or 8-inch). Add in the quinoa, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, and brown sugar. Pour over the apple cider. Mix to combine. Add the butter right on top.

2. Bake and finish: Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for 10-15 minutes more, until the liquid is absorbed, and the top has slightly caramelized. Serve with vanilla yogurt.
