Method
Quinoa
Wash seeds in a fine sieve before use. Boil 1 cup to 2 cups of water. As soon as seeds sprout take off the heat and put the lid on to absorb excess water. Fluff and separate with fork. Put to the side to cool. Or use quinoa flakes.
 
Stewed Apple
Peel and chop into small pieces and cook in pan with 1/4 cup of water until softened. Remove from heat and store in a container in the fridge.
