    • 1/3 cup milk, substitute
    • 1/3 cup water
    • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, powder
    • 1 pinch ginger powder
    • 1 tablespoon flax seed, ground (I use ground sunflower seeds!!)
    • 1 tablespoon unpasteurized honey (raw)

    1. 1
      Rinse the quinoa in a fine mesh sieve.
    2. 2
      Place in a medium saucepan with milk, water, cinnamon and pinch of ginger powder. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minute (At this point the quinoa should have a slight crunch when you bite it.) Remove from heat and drain any remaining liquid, if any.

    4. 4

      I would give this more stars if I could. It is SOOOO delicious! I should have watched the quinoa more carefully as it was cooking, as it started to boil over, then all the quinoa was left on the side of the pot, not cooking in the liquid as it should have been. I did use toasted quinoa, using the method on this site. I'm not sure if that made a difference but the end result is absolutely heavenly! It is the perfect blend of flavors with a lovely pop when the pomegranite seeds burst! I will double the recipe next time. I made this for my daughter and she saved me a bit, but that was not enough! Thanks for sharing this fabulous recipe!

      This was a great breakfast for DH and I. I did toast my quinoa before cooking it, and used almond milk as some others did. I could not find pomegranates in the grocery anywhere, so settled on using a 1/4 cup combination of sultanas, cranberries and dark cherries. I did add the flax seed meal and skipped the coconut. The toasted almonds were a great topper. I liked the ease of this, which would help on those very early mornings I get up for the gym - this would be a great recovery food. Thanks for posting this UmmBinat - made for ZWT7 and the HOT PINK LADIES!

      This made a delicious breakfast. The recipe was doubled and actually made 3 nice servings. The quinoa was cooked in almond milk. I did reduce the flax seed by half and toasted the coconut along with the almonds. As hearty, good for you breakfast that stays with you throughout the morning. Made for the Vivacious Violets and ZWT 7.
