INSTRUCTIONS:

Put the water, quinoa, raisins, cranberries, vegan buttery spread (optional), and cinnamon in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Decrease the heat to low, cover, and cook for about 15 minutes, until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is soft but not mushy.

Remove from the heat and give the quinoa a stir to fluff it up. Sprinkle the optional brown sugar evenly over the top. Cover and let stand 3 to 5 minutes. Spoon into cereal bowls. Serve hot, with dairy-free milk and more brown sugar or maple syrup, if desired.
