Posted by: Rita in: ● March 6, 2011

“Quinoa for breakfast?!” you ask… absolutely! Especially if you enjoy oatmeal for breakfast regularly, switch it up with this quinoa every once in a while to get higher amounts of a complete protein.

1 cup quinoa

2 cups water

pinch of sea salt

2 cups vanilla almond milk

1 tbsp. real maple syrup

1/2 cup dried figs, chopped

1/2 cup pecans, chopped

Cinnamon to taste

Bring water to boil and cook quinoa on medium-low, covered, with a pinch of sea salt for ~ 15 mins or until water is mostly absorbed. Keeping pot on medium-low, add the 2 cups of almond milk and maple syrup. Simmer until quinoa has expanded and it has a creamy, oatmeal-like consistency, then stir in figs and pecans.  Sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon when serving and enjoy!

Serves 2-3
