Tropical Quinoa

When I saw the additions to the quinoa, in this recipe from All Recipes. Com, I knew I had to make it.  How could you go wrong with it?  Actually, I did goof, big time.  I must have put too much liquid in the quinoa and it was mushy.  Despite this, the added flavors made it worthy of eating and I would make it again, just with more care.

Tropical Quinoa

1/2 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed
1 cup water
1/4 cup chopped dried pineapple
1/2 cup dried mango
1/2 cup cut-up apple
1/4 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup nuts, chopped              


Mix the quinoa and water in a saucepan over medium heat, and bring to a boil. 

Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until all the water is absorbed, 10 to 12 minutes. 

Remove from heat, and stir in the dried pineapple, dried mango, coconut flakes,  nuts.    

Eat and enjoy.

Serve hot.
