Quinoa Breakfast

| (0) comments |

I often hear people say that they want to try quinoa but they aren't sure what to do with it. My answer...ANYTHING! Quinoa can be used just about anywhere you would use rice or oatmeal. This recipe  is SO yummy.  As a bonus, the cinnamon and vanilla makes your whole house smell divine! :)

I will give you the main ingredients but honestly when it comes to the fruit and nut combinations there is no limit. Experiment with your favorites. Enjoy!


Quinoa Breakfast

Ingredients: (organic & non-gmo if possible)
1 cup quinoa
1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 can coconut milk
Fruit and nuts of your choice

  • Combine the quinoa, water, cinnamon and vanilla in a small pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover and let simmer for 15 minutes until you can fluff with a fork. 
  • While the quinoa is cooking, prepare your toppings. For the picture below I used chopped dates, a gala apple, and a granny smith apple. It is also fabulous with strawberries or any other berry for that matter. 
  • Once the quinoa is done, turn the heat to low and add your chopped toppings to the pot and stir.
  • Now add your can of coconut milk to a separate pot to warm. I like to sprinkle a little cinnamon in with the coconut milk as well. While the milk is heating, start to stir with a whisk. You will want to froth the milk the entire time it is heating. This will give it a creamier texture. 
  • After the coconut milk is warm, scoop a portion of the quinoa mixture into a bowl and top with the coconut milk. Serve immediately. 

**Leftovers: Store milk & mixture separately in sealed containers in the refrigerator.
