A nice bowl of quinoa for breakfast is an excellent way to fill up with energy in the morning.
|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||milk, partly skimmed, 2%||65 mL|
|1 pinch||salt [optional]||0.1 g|
- Place the quinoa in a fine strainer and hold it under cold running water until the water runs clear, then drain well.
- 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.
- Remove pan from heat and let stand, covered, 5 min. Remove cinnamon stick*. Fluff with a fork then portion out to bowls.
- Top each bowl with walnuts, raisins, maple syrup, and milk, then serve.
* The used cinnamon stick may be rinsed, dried and stored for reuse.
