Breakfast Quinoa

Ingredients

1 cup quinoa, uncooked and rinsed
1 cup water
1 cup apricot nectar (or other nectar, no extra sugar added)
2 apples, cored, diced
1 cup blueberries, rinsed
2 tbsp chopped walnuts
2 cups plain yogurt (nonfat, no sugar added)

Directions

1. Bring rinsed quinoa, water and nectar to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover. Let cook until all liquid is absorbed, about 10-15 minutes.

2. Remove from heat and let cool. Once quinoa is completely cool, toss with diced apples, blueberries, and chopped walnuts. Top with yogurt just before serving.
