Nutritional values

The pseudo-cereal quinoa is ideal for vegetarians, because it contains iron and protein, both substances that easily fall short in a vegetarian diet. Iron is important for blood formation and oxygen transport in the body. 

For a creamier apple-cinnamon quinoa, you can stir in some almond drink at the end.
