Breakfast Quinoa

 

This dish is SO DARN GOOD! I cannot get over how amazing it tasted. Sweet but hearty,and a little nutty all at once. I am IN LOVE with this. Make it. You won’t be disappointed.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 tsp. Truvia

1 cup quinoa:soak for 10 minutes first,then rinse in strainer.

2 cups pitted quartered cherries

2 tablespoons TOASTED sliced or slivered almonds (or nut of choice)

1 tablespoon Chia Seeds

1 mashed up banana

Dash of cinnamon when served,and a dollop of pure maple syrup or agave if you wish.

Directions:

Bring milk to a boil in a small saucepan. Add quinoa,cover,reduce to a low simmer,and cook 15-25 minutes. Quinoa is done when most of the liquid is soaked up -much like cooking rice.

While milk is coming to a boil,toast almonds in a dry skillet over medium heat until golden brown and fragrant,which should only take a few minutes.

Remove quinoa from heat,add in mashed banana,and chia seeds. Stir. Depending on consistency you prefer,you may want to add a dash more of almond milk.

Top with almonds and cherries;cinnamon and syrup and serve warm!
