Ingredients

1/4 cup quinoa 45 g
1/2 cup water 125 mL
1 cinnamon sticks 3 g
2 tsp walnuts 4 g
1/2 tbsp raisins 5 g
1 tbsp maple syrup 15 mL
1/4 cup almond beverage, unsweetened, fortified 65 mL
salt [optional]

Method

  1. Place the quinoa in a fine strainer and hold it under cold running water until the water runs clear, then drain well.
  2. Combine the quinoa, water, and cinnamon stick with salt to taste in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook until the grains are translucent and the germ has spiralled out from each grain, about 15 min.
  3. Remove pan from heat and let stand, covered, 5 min. Remove cinnamon stick*. Fluff with a fork then portion out to bowls.
  4. Top each bowl with walnuts, raisins, maple syrup, and milk, then serve.
