Ingredients

  • 2
    cups water, milk or soy milk
  • 1
    cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1/4
    teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1
    cup fresh or frozen blueberries (thawed)
  • 1/4
    cup toasted pecans or walnuts
  • Maple syrup (optional)

Steps

  • 1
    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.
