A gluten free hot cereal option instead of oatmeal. The fruits and nuts can be changed to accomodate individual tastes or to keep things interesting.

  • 1/2 c. quinoa, white, organic
  • 1 c. water, purified
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, ground, organic
  • 1 pinch sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1/2 c. coconut milk, unsweetened, full-fat, organic, canned
  • 1/2 sml. apple, red, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 c. blueberries, frozen, organic
  • 1/3 c. walnuts, raw, organic
  • 1/2 tbs. maple syrup, pure, organic

Add quinoa, water, cinnamon and salt to a small pot and bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until most of the water has been absorbed. Add coconut milk and simmer uncovered for an additional 10 minutes. Stir in apple, blueberries and nuts. Let sit, covered for 10 minutes before serving. The porridge will thicken during this time. Drizzle with maple syrup or stevia before serving if desired.
