- Preparation Time: 5
- 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.
NotesThis 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.
