March 18, 2011
cups water, milk or soy milk
cup quinoa, rinsed
teaspoon ground cinnamon
cup fresh or frozen blueberries (thawed)
cup toasted pecans or walnuts
Maple syrup (optional)
In a small saucepan, heat water to boiling over high heat. Add quinoa; return to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook for 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed (mixture will still be moist).
Stir in cinnamon. Spoon quinoa into bowls. Top with blueberries, nuts, and sweeten to taste with a drizzle of maple syrup.
Use more liquid for a creamier cereal, or serve additional milk or cream on the side.
Try varying the recipe with your favorite dried or fresh fruits and nuts.
