Quinoa should be rinsed before cooking. A mesh wire sieve would be best because quinoa is pretty small. If you don’t have a mesh sieve, you can kind of slosh it carefully around in a bowl. You want to run water over the quinoa in the sieve for a good 1-2 minutes.
Add the washed quinoa, apple cider, salt, cinnamon, and allspice to a medium pot.
Bring to a boil. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes.
Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 10 minutes.
While waiting, chop your apple and measure out your nut/dried fruit mixture.
Fluff the quinoa with a fork and add the chopped apple and nut/dried fruit mixture.
Stir to combine and serve.
Optional: add a touch of vanilla almond milk on top.
