- Put the quinoa in a sieve and rinse well under cold running water. Tip the quinoa into a saucepan, then pour in the milk. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the apple, sultanas and cinnamon and simmer for 5–6 minutes, or until all of the liquid is absorbed. Remove the cinnamon stick, if using.
