Quinoa Breakfast

Can we make this quick?  I would truly like to stay longer, but I have some place to ‘be’.  And shortly.  Thankfully, I don’t have to leave the comfort of my pajamas or my couch, but I do need to be logged in elsewhere and not blabbering on and on about my day to day here, in my little corner of the Internet.

You see, it is draft day for my fantasy baseball league.  So you see, while I would love to sit around and chit chat about the wonders of quinoa as a breakfast staple and how delicious it tastes made with almond milk, brown sugar, cinnamon,and berries….and how it kept me full until lunch time – unheard of…I simply can’t do so tonight.

I have a baseball team roster to fill.

I hope no one picks Omar.

Quinoa…go!

P.S.  Yo…lacking time in the morning?  Totally get that.  Guess what?  This tastes great warmed up the following morning.  Fantastic right!?!  Yeah, that is what I thought!

Breakfast Quinoa

Servings 2-3

Ingredients 

  • 2 Cups Almond Milk
  • 1 Cup Quinoa, uncooked
  • 2 Tablespoon Brown Sugar, plus extra for finishing
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • Mixed Berries

In a medium pot, combine quinoa, almond milk, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon.  Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.  Once boiling, reduce heat to low to maintain a simmer and cover the pot with a tight fitting lid.  Continue to cook for about 15 to 20 minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed.  Let sit for about 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork and serving.

Top with fresh berries, a sprinkle of brown sugar, and a pinch of cinnamon.

Happy Healthy Breakfast!
