2 Tablespoons red lentils, rinsed and drained
1 small to medium apple, cored and chopped
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1-2 packets sweetener, to taste
3/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons water
1. Into a saucepan, add the quinoa, lentils, apple, salt, cinnamon and water. Place a lid on the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer (covered) for about 15 minutes, until all of the water is absorbed.
