Quinoa Fruit Bake

Make this dish the night before and reheat in the microwave, or whip it up fresh for a brunch. You’ll love the combination of sweet spices with soft quinoa interspersed with delicious fruit. If you like a good, fruit-heavy breakfast, don’t hesitate to double down on the berries or apples. Sweeter apple varieties provide a particularly delightful end result, so don’t be afraid to play!
