Breakfast Quinoa

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

It is the end of the month and I have very little food in the house, I have nothing in the fridge, and when I say nothing I mean I have condiments and 2 tomatoes- nothing! I have enough to get through lunch and dinner until Sunday when I get money, but breakfast is another story, so I needed to come up with a solution... Luckily I had quinoa so I made Breakfast Quinoa this morning and it was amazing!!!

1/2c quinoa
1/2c water
1/2c coconut milk
1tsp vanilla extract
1tbsp nutmeg
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. sugar
1/4c raisins

Rinse quinoa, bring water, coconut milk, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and lemon juice to a boil in a pan with a tight fitting lid- turn down heat and let simmer for 16 minutes.

Take off heat (keep covered) for 5 minutes.

Fluff with fork, stir in sugar and raisins, enjoy!

    Soooooo yummy! You can use regular milk too, I just had coconut milk on hand as I use that on my cereal not regular milk.
