Hot Quinoa Cereal

Hot Quinoa Cereal created by Debbwl

A great alternative to oatmeal in the morning, quinoa's protein is of an unusually high quality. It is a complete protein, with an essential amino acid balance close to the ideal. So it makes the perfect breakfast food! I got the idea for this dish from: http://www.celiacteen.com/2010/chai-infused-quinoa-flakes/

ingredients

  • 13 cup quinoa flakes
  • 1 1 cup rice milk or 1 cup water
  • 1 1 tablespoon maple syrup or 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 14 cup dried fruit
  • 2 tablespoons nuts, chopped

directions

  • Combine quinoa flakes with liquid of your choice in a 2 - 2 1/2 cup microwaveable bowl -- I used a combination of rice milk and coconut milk the first time I made this.
  • Microwave for 2 1/2 mins watching closely so it doesn't boil over. Use a larger bowl if you want to avoid a potential mess.
  • Add in dried fruit, nuts, and sweetener (honey, agave nectar, maple syrup, sugar).
  • Let stand for a few minutes or until it's at a temperature you can comfortably consume it without burning your mouth!

    I made this a bit different to be even healthier. On my package of quinoa flakes it said add boiling water and wait a minute so I did that on the stove top with home-made almond milk. I used a good quality local creamed honey, fresh fruit and walnut halves for the nuts. I would make this again the same way or maybe try it with dried fruit and it would be 5 stars.

    A nice change of pace with delightful fall flavors! Made this nice healthy cereal using the fallowing options 1% milk, maple syrup, dried apples, and walnuts, yep that combo tasted just like fall while warming up the tummy. Thanks for the post.

    I give this recipe high marks on ease of preperation. It also is very good for you. I do like oatmeal better but this was good. I used honey as my sweetner and dried apples and peaches for the dried fruit. give it a try
