Cinnamon-blueberry Quinoa

Submitted by: CRAUDI

Introduction

A delicious alternative to your morning oatmeal routine!

Feel free to lower the fat with 1%, skim, soy or almond milk too!

Adapted from 101 Cookbooks "Warm and Nutty Cinnamon Quinoa" recipe. As listed on her website, any kind of quinoa will work, blueberries can be replaced by blackberries, pecans can be replaced by walnuts, honey can be replaced by agave nectar, and I've already listed the milk substitutions!

Ingredients

    1/4 cup 2% milk
    1/4 cup water
    1/4 cup red quinoa
    1/2 cup fresh blueberries
    1 tsp honey
    1/6 cup chopped and toasted pecans

Directions

Combine milk, water and quinoa in a saucepan. On high heat, bring quinoa mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to just above low; cover and simmer 15 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed (watch your pot so it doesn't boil over!). Remove from heat and let it stand covered 5 minutes. Stir in blueberries and cinnamon. Transfer to bowl and top with toasted pecans. (I toasted mine in a 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes while the quinoa finished cooking.) Drizzle with honey and enjoy!!
