How to make Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Quinoa:
Step 1: Turn the stove or hot plate on to medium heat. Put the non-stick frying pan on the stove or hotplate.
Step 2: Put the butter in the frying pan.
Step 3: When the butter is melted, put the apple into the frying pan.
Step 4: Cook the apple, stirring often with a rubber spatula, for about two minutes or until the apple starts to soften.
