This was really really good! I found a basic recipe and then altered it to my liking.
Quinoa is loaded with protein so it is a great way to start the day. I added raisins and banana to mine and I gobbled it right up.
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 cup full fat coconut milk (you can sub in regular milk if needed)
1 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp brown sugar
1-2 tsp cinnamon (depending on your taste)
Raisins and banana for topping (optional)
Mix all ingredients except raisins and banana in a medium sauce pan with a lid. Heat over medium high heat and bring to a boil. After it boils, turn down to simmer and cover with lid. Let simmer for 15 minutes, until all liquid is absorbed.
Top with toppings. Serves 2.
