  • Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat; stir in quinoa flakes and salt. Cook 1 1/2 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; stir in sugar, and let stand 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.

  • While cereal stands, return apple mixture to medium heat; add syrup, butter, and vanilla, stirring just until butter melts. Serve apple mixture over cereal.

Chef's Notes

Pure vanilla extract is made from distilled alcohol and flavor extracted from the vanilla seeds (artificial extract gets its vanilla flavor from artificial vanilla flavoring). The distillation process removes the gluten from the alcohol. This is true of other extracts too, such as almond and banana.
