( if not using maple flavoring, increase vanilla to 1/2 t.)
( I use frozen wild Maine blueberries)
coarsely chopped pecans, toasted
pure maple syrup
( or more to taste)
- Rinse quinoa in fine mesh strainer under running water. Drain well.
- Place quinoa in saucepan over medium heat. Cook about 10-15 minutes, or until quinoa turns golden brown. (The quinoa will pop as it turns golden brown).
- Add the milk, water and vanilla (and maple flavoring if using) to the saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover, cooking about 10-15 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and let stand 3-5 minutes.
- Stir in cinnamon, blueberries and pecans. Spoon into serving bowls. Drizzle each bowl with a tablespoon of pure maple syrup.
