Raspberry Quinoa Applesauce


Recipe by Deirdre Imus, The Imus Ranch: Cooking for Kids and Cowboys

I recommend using all organic non GMO ingredients.

This is a great side dish to serve either at breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Preparation time: 10 minutes


1            Pound red apples

1            Cup prepared quinoa

1/2         Cup raspberry-banana puree

2            Tablespoons raw unrefined sugar  

1            Teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 to 2     Teaspoons freshly grated nutmeg

1/4         Teaspoon ground allspice


Cooking time: 10 minutes

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  While the water is coming to a boil, peel, core, and slice the apples.  When the water is boiling, add the apples and cook until soft, about 10 minutes.  Drain and transfer the apples to the container of a food processor.  Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.  The applesauce is equally good served warm or cold.


Makes 2 cups
