Serves 2-4

When it comes to hot breakfast cereals the combination of walnuts, raisins and cinnamon is classic. Using Quinoa in place of oats or wheat adds a deliciously unique hearty flavor and subtle crunch that is sure to become a morning favorite. Considered a “Superfood” gluten free quinoa is loaded with protein, iron, calcium and fiber! For even more variety add your choice of nuts, dried fruits and fresh fruit. When I know I’m going to have a busy week I’ll double the recipe and store leftovers in the fridge in a covered container. Simply reheat porridge with an additional splash of non-dairy milk.

1 C. uncooked Quinoa

1 C. water

2 C. non-dairy milk (almond, soy or rice) divided in half

½ teaspoons. cinnamon

3 or more tablespoons chopped walnuts

2 or more tablespoons of Craisins or raisins

2 or more tablespoon chopped dates

2 or more tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes

2 teaspoons agave nectar or maple syrup

Combine quinoa, water and one cup of milk in an uncovered saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until most of the water has been absorbed. Add the remaining one cup of milk and cinnamon and mix well. Toss in the walnuts, craisins , dates and coconut. Simmer, stirring frequently, on very low for an additional 5 minutes or until the porridge reaches the consistency you like. Add the agave nectar or syrup to taste and serve!
