Looks yummy, right? That’s because it *is* yummy. Although quinoa is not a true cereal or grain, its edible seeds are of high nutritional value. Quinoa is also gluten-free, high in protein, and has a low glycemic index, which I think makes it a perfect breakfast food.
You will need:
1 cup quinoa
1 cup almond milk (I prefer Silk True Almond unsweetened)
1 cup water
15-30 ml (1-2 tablespoons) molasses (less sweet, more sweet, it’s up to you)
1 cup blueberries
1 cup blackberries
1/2 cup raisins (or dried cranberries if you like a tarter taste)
1/3 cup sliced almonds
5 ml (1 tsp) ground cinnamon
Using medium heat, combine quinoa, milk, water, cinnamon, and dried fruit in a saucepan. Cook until the contents are simmering, stirring occasionally. Cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook until the quinoa has absorbed the liquid. This may take 10-15 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Let stand 5 minutes. Best when served warm, although I’ve eaten it cold and it’s just as yummy.
