Quinoa Oatmeal for Two

Submitted by: EVIE_M

Introduction

Serves 2
To ease the morning rush, mix the dry ingredients the night before. This is a great cereal mix to keep on hand.

Ingredients

    1/4 cup steel cut oats
    1/4 cup quinoa
    1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    Dash of salt
    1 cup water
    1 Tablespoon Splenda (optional)

Directions

In a 2-quart microwave safe bowl, combine oats, quinoa, flaxseed, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in water. Microwave on high for 6 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.

You can add fresh or dried fruit to this recipe. I expecially like dried cranberries or dates with a slivered almonds. One or two dates is plenty for one serving. I also like fresh apples or raisins. Peaches are good in season. Increase water slightly if you add dried fruit before cooking.

Tips: Leave room for expansion in the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap when cooking. (I cook this in 1 minute intervals to prevent boiling over.) Put the water on the night before for a softer textured cereal. This cereal will last about 3 days in the refrigerator after water has been added and/or it is cooked.
