  • Rinse the quinoa in a fine mesh sieve.
  • 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.
