This take on oatmeal is a delicious way to switch up your breakfast. Quinoa is a seed, that is high in protein. When cooked, it resembles rice! For breakfast, we like to cook quinoa with milk and cinnamon for extra flavour, and top with yogurt and fruit.
Bring milk to a boil in a small pot. Add the quinoa, cinnamon, and maple syrup.
Cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.
Add ½ the quinoa to a bowl, and top with ¼ cup more milk or alternative. Add 1 teaspoon of honey or maple syrup, fresh fruit, and 1 tablespoon of nuts or seeds.
Store leftover prepared quinoa in the fridge and enjoy for breakfast tomorrow as well!
