This morning I tried a breakfast variation, stolen from my new favorite food blog, 101 Cookbooks. Check this website for a variety of vegetarian-inspired (although not all are meatless), often organic recipes.
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup quinoa (rinsed!)
- 2 cups fruit/berries (I used some chopped, fresh blackberries)
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (next time I'll use a little more for more flavor)
- 1/3 c toasted nuts (optional)
- sugar/honey/nectar to taste (I stuck w/ sugar, as I didn't want the honey w/ the nuts, and I'm allergic to nectars.)
Combine milk, water and quinoa in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to medium-low; cover and simmer 15 minutes (or until most of the liquid is absorbed). Turn off heat and let stand 5 minutes. Stir in fruit and cinnamon. Transfer to bowls and top with nuts. Add sweetener to taste.
