Start your mornings off with this wonder grain cooked to sweet perfection.
1 cup red quinoa
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
2 tsp coconut powder
2 tsp vanilla powder
Add quinoa to 2 cups of water, and bring to a boil in a medium-size pot. The second it starts to boil, cover with a lid and turn down the flame to as low as it will go. Cook for 15 minutes, then remove from heat and let sit for five minutes. Then move it to a bowl or container. In a medium-size pot, bring coconut milk, coconut powder, vanilla powder and a pinch of sea salt to a boil. Stir in ¾ cup of the cooked quinoa to the boiling milk then serve. Enjoy the hot breakfast quinoa topped with a pad of unsalted butter and your favorite fruit, such as blueberries and bananas, and sweeten as desired.
