 Main ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of raw quinoa
  • 1 cup of Almond Milk. We prefer Almond, Breeze, and both Vanilla or Original can do
  • 1-2 sticks of cinnamon
  • 12 teaspoons pure vanilla extract, or a piece of vanilla bean
  • A pinch of salt

For garnishing:

  • Almonds that have been cut and toast
  • Toasted coconut Flakes
  • Peaches and Raspberries
  • Optional additional splashes of almond milk, optional spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.), maple syrup

2. Breakfast Quinoa Instructions

 1. First, the quinoa should be thoroughly rinsed and drained.

2. Add the almond milk, a couple of cinnamon sticks, vanilla, and a dash of salt in a small saucepan. Bring everything to a high temperature, cover, and lower the heat to simmer for 15 minutes. Don’t just walk away; if it starts bubbling, turn off the heat, give it a stir if necessary, and then continue.

3. Remove the skillet from the heat after 15 minutes, then let the quinoa sit for a further 5 minutes to allow the almond milk to be absorbed and the quinoa to finish cooking. When adding more spices, taste the dish first.

4. Scoop the quinoa into two bowls and top with toasted almonds, toasted coconut, and fruit. Serve with maple syrup if you like. Enjoy as a fluffy pilaf, or as a porridge with warm almond milk poured on top.

3. Chef Notes

Cooked quinoa can be stored in the fridge for 4-5 days. Serve at room temp or reheat it if you like. If it’s too dry, add a few more splashes of almond milk.

Substitute the garnishes with whatever seasonal fruit you please, dried fruits also work fine here.
