    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Rinse quinoa well with water to remove bitter coating; drain.
    2. 2
      Place almonds in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir frequently until almonds are toasted and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Combine quinoa, water, raisins, cinnamon, and nutmeg in the same saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the oats, replace cover, and cook for an additional 6 minutes. Add the almonds and sugar. Top with vanilla yogurt, milk, soymilk, or half and half cream, if using. Serve immediately.

      I really loved this breakfast treat! The almonds I thought I had were actually pecans so I used those, and used regular (not quick cooking) oatmeal. The raisins and spices were a perfect match to the nutty quinoa. I served with a little low-fat milk and enjoyed every bite - thanks for sharing the recipe!

      This is an excellent breakfast. I used the quick oats ask for but for mu own preference I would prefer the old fashioned type. I just have quinoa flakes and they worked just fine. The raisins ans a bit of (no sugar added) maple syrup were great additions. Start to finish, using the flakes, was about 6 mins! Thanks Kat for another yummy recipe.

      A terrific way to introduce quinoa to the family! I use old fashioned oats and a little less sugar, maybe half---the raisins add quite a bit of sweetness on their own (I figure I can always sweeten a bit more later, if needed). And the spices are great! I also tried stevia this morning to cut out the added sugar all together, worked fine for me. I have used milk and coconut milk on this--both are yummy. My picky 2 year old daughter will eat this just like she eats her oatmeal. This will be in regular rotation for our breakfast routine. Can't wait to try with other dried fruits--cranberries, blueberries, chopped apricots--I'm sure it'll be great! Thanks for posting!
