cinnamon breakfast quinoa

Quinoa. It's not just for dinner anymore!

  • 1/4 cup quinoa
  • 1/2 apple diced
  • 1 Tbl. raisins
  • 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup rice milk
  • 8 almonds chopped

1. Place the quinoa and 1/2 cup water in a small pot and bring to a boil**
2. Turn the heat down to low, cover & simmer the quinoa for 15 minutes while your chop and measure the other ingredients
3. When the quinoa is cooked, toss it in a bowl with the apple, raisins & cinnamon and give it a stir until everything is combined
4. Pour the milk over the concoction and top with the chopped almonds
5. Dig in!

**Note: If you're often short on time in the morning, make a big batch of quinoa on Sunday & use it all week. I scoop out 1/2 cup cooked quinoa, mix it with the other ingredients, microwave it for about a minute, and it's still delicious :)
