Ingredients

1/4 cup quinoa 45 g
1/2 cup water 125 mL
1 vanilla beans 2 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. Slit the vanilla bean lengthwise down the centre, scrape out some of the seeds, then add them along with the scraped bean to the saucepan. Add the quinoa and water,with salt to taste. 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. Fluff with a fork then portion out to bowls.
  4. Add the maple syrup, and milk, then serve.

Remarks
