      This was such a nice change for breakfast. I had never rinsed quinoa before and my package had recipes that didn't suggest it, but I tried it anyway and would do it again for this recipe. My local grocer doesn't carry cream of brown rice cereal so I used cream of rice cereal. The pinch of saffron was a delight to the eye as well as the palate. I look forward to making this again. Thanks, UmmBinat! Made for Veggie/NA*ME tag game.

      Made my own brown rice cereal by grinding raw long grain rice
      in a spice grinder. Used local blackberry honey. I have a difficult time
      passing up any recipe with cardamom and saffron. Served with a splash
      of plain kefir. Mmmm! Thanks for posting! Reviewed for NA*ME tag. Come play!

      Very yummy indeed! I was out of quinoa so used amaranth, which works pretty much the same. Scaled it down to one serving and used only 1 teaspoon honey - delicious, a keeper. Thanks for sharing! Made for Healthy Choices ABC.
