As mentioned in the previous post, the health benefits for quinoa are plentiful, but so are the options for cooking and eating it!

I am always looking for (healthy) recipes for quinoa preparation. I usually make up my concoction for breakfast that simply include cooked quinoa, cinnamon, and whatever fruit I have in the refrigerator. But here is an actual recipe I found from another blog:

Apple and Blueberry Walnut Breakfast Quinoa

1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed well
1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp cinammon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

4 tbsp real maple syrup
1 cup warm milk (I used dairy-free almond milk)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup blueberries
1 large diced apple

Rinse quinoa very well through a strainer. Combine quinoa, water, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla extract in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let simmer for 15 minutes until there is little to no liquid and the quinoa can be fluffed up with a fork.

Spoon quinoa into four bowls and drizzle with maple syrup. Sprinkle diced apple, blueberries and walnuts and add warm milk.
