We love making this nourishing vegan breakfast on chilly autumn mornings. Try making a double batch of the apples (use a larger pan) and save some in the fridge for the next few breakfasts. You can also add fresh or frozen cranberries to the apples or dried fruit such as raisins or currants. Try using other fruit in place of the apples such as fresh or frozen peaches or plums. Make a double batch of quinoa as well, so you can have leftovers for the next few days.
