Blueberry Quinoa with Lemon Glaze
October 09, 2017

This was pretty good. I definitely made some changes, though. I cut this recipe by 2/3 (there are only two of us in the house, and due to dietary issues, neither of us eats much), so 1c quinoa and I used only 1.5 c of apple juice for the quinoa (based on some of the reviews... we wanted something not soupy/gloppy). I also felt it needed more sweetness. I used honey instead of maple syrup (I don't like the fake stuff and that's all we had in the house) and ran out (I had enough for the recipe, but not extra), so I added stevia to up the sweetness in both. I added cinnamon to the quinoa and instead of adding blueberries at the end, I added them 10 minutes into cooking the quinoa and let them cook together for the last five minutes of cooking. I had extra fresh squeezed lemon juice and just made the full amount of topping (several reviews said they made extra, so I just didn't cut that part of the recipe down). That topping is TART!! I used honey AND stevia in it and I think it was still almost too bold. My boyfriend said it was better in the middle where it had soaked into the quinoa overnight, so I might not let it thicken as much next time so it'll soak in more fully. I think this recipe has a LOT of potential though. We always have fruit in the house, and since it's autumn, I think I'm going to try an apple/cranberry/walnut version with a cinnamon caramel topping next time. And maybe raspberries or blackberries with the lemon, or mangoes with lime instead of lemon.
