Quinoa Cereal.

Every morning a warm bowl of porridge is always great to start the day, but when sloppy, gummy oats is all you get, which you want to drown in maple syrup, brown sugar and everything else you can find to make it edible, sometimes finding a healthy, and in my opinion, a tastier alternative.

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 cup Quinoa
  • 2 cups Milk (I use Soy milk, but Rice milk also works)
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon or one stick broken in half.

Directions:

Combine ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil.  When boiling, turn down to low boil and watch for ten minutes.  When the quinoa is cooked (you can tell when it doesn't look like seeds anymore) you're done.  Take it off the heat and enjoy with fresh fruit, preserved fruit, raisins, cranberries... pretty much anything.  I drizzle just a tiny bit of pure maple syrup on mine.  It also re-heats really well.
