Breakfast Quinoa with Fruit and Nuts

Monday, January 13, 2014

Breakfast Quinoa
inspired by Martha Stewart

2 c. whole or low-fat milk, plus more for serving
1 c. quinoa, rinsed
pinch salt
2-3 TBSP maple syrup, honey, or brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 c. fresh or dried fruit (blueberries, apples, dried cranberries work well)
1/2 c. chopped nuts, plus more for serving

See an Asian Pot Roast Recipe

1. Bring milk to a boil in a small saucepan. You'll want to stay by the pan because the milk will boil and bubble over very quickly. Add quinoa and salt, and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, until three-quarters of the milk has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.

2. Stir in maple syrup, honey, or brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook, covered, until almost all the milk has been absorbed, about eight minutes.

3. Stir in fruit and nuts, and cook until warmed through, about one minute more. Serve with additional milk, sugar, cinnamon, fruit, and nuts, if desired. kelseysappleaday.blogspo
