    *Ancient Harvest Traditional Whole Grain Quinoa, 1 cup

    Cinnamon, ground, 1 tbsp
    Nutmeg, ground, 1 tsp
    Ginger, ground, 1 tsp
    *Splenda, 9 tsp

Directions

rinse the quinoa well in cold water. I find soaking for a few mins and then straining and rinsing works well.
Add the quinoa, water and spices to boil- you can adjust spices to your liking, of course.
Bring to a boil, then simmer on very low for 25 more minutes.
When water is absorbed, mix in the walnuts.
enjoy hot or cold. makes 4 1/2 cup servings

  • A tasty and healthy breakfast! My adjustments: I used 2Tbsp dark brown sugar instead of Splenda. I also used allspice instead of nutmeg. I'll be making this often! - 11/28/13

  • To add extra antioxidents and to change it up a bit, add 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries. Very yummy warm breakfast item. Havent tried it with apples but bet it would be great with them as well - 1/19/12

  • I added a chopped apple and left out the splenda. I had slivered almonds on hand so used those in place of walnuts. I top each serving with raw honey. Deeeeee-licious!!! - 11/15/11
