QUINOA HOT CEREAL

 

  • Cooking Time: 15
  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time: 5

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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.

Notes

This is reminiscent of oatmeal…but with more of a crunch. A nice change of pace from regular old breakfasts, and with quinoa’s high protein & fiber content, you’ll feel satisfied until lunch.
