Quinoa Hot Cereal
1 cup quinoa
1 cup water
1 cup low-fat milk or soymilk
1 banana, diced
2 Tbsp honey or maple syrup
pinch of cinnamon
Combine ingredients in a small pot, bring to a gentle boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer for about 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and grains are creamy.
If you want an even creamier texture, stir in more milk a little at a time, with pot uncovered and over low heat.
To serve, top with more diced banana, dried fruit of any kind, chopped nuts or toasted coconut, drizzles of honey and milk.
