Want another adjective – simple! For any of you who like your food to taste like your food and not like sugar sugar sugar, this is the recipe for you. So apple-y …so oat-y …so quinoa-y ….and so walnut-y. (I wonder why it’s so hard for me to get writing jobs :P)
Yes you did read that correct – quinoa in a crumble. See we like to put quinoa in everything at our house. In our granola, mixed with rice, eaten in salad, some days Brad likes to put a little quinoa in his hair when he’s had a rough week – what do you think makes it stay up? (Please tell me you all know that’s movie it’s from … )
Recipe time …
Easy Healthy Apple Crumble
- 1/3 cup half cooked quinoa (use half the water as per the directions and leave it on 5 minutes, it gets a bit chewy but still crunchy)
- 2/3 cup rolled oats
- 1/3 cup walnuts
- 3 small apples
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
Filling: Chop apples into small pieces and put into baking dish. Melt one tablespoon of butter and pour over apples and mix until apples are coated.
Toping: Mix together quinoa, oats, walnuts, brown sugar and pour over apples in baking dish.
Cook: 30 minutes at 350 degrees
It’s very delicious! Put a dollop of vanilla ice cream on top for a dessert or a few spoonfuls of yogurt for breakfast. I finished off this whole batch in about 20 hours. Serves 4 😛
