Happy Cinnamon roll day!

Hi guys!

I wish I could capture the lovely smell in our flat and share with you guys. Or do you know anything better than the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls? I learned today that 4th of October is apparently celebrated as "kanelbullens dag", cinnamon roll day. Luckily enough I had some ready buns in my freezer from IKEA plus I had a great spinach-quinoa risotto recipe in mind containing cinnamon.

The risotto was tasty and so good in so many ways for a vegetarian diet that I have to share the recipe with you! The recipe contains cashew nuts and coconut milk which are great source of good fat. From quinoa you'll get protein and from spinach iron. The original recipe in Finnish is here.

Here's what you'll need:

3 dl (dry) quinoa
1 table spoon apple vinegar
3 dl Cashew nuts (soak them 4-8 hours in water before using)
0,5 dl coconut milk
3 dl + 3 dl water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon garlic spice
150 grams (frozen) spinach
2 onions

Rinse the quinoa well and boil in 3 dl of water with the apple vinegar for about 10 min until it's ready.

Put 3 dl of water, cashew nuts, coconut milk, cinnamon, garlic spice and salt in a blender and blend.

Chop onions and fry them in a dry pan until they get a bit brown. Add spinach and fry until they melt. Add quinoa and cashew-coconut cream and mix. Add salt if needed.
