Quinoa “Oatmeal”

IMG_2287

As I told you last week my new addition to my diet is Breakfast and I am LOVING it!!! I plan to switch it up every week and try something new. This is a cooked breakfast and it was so good! I love quinoa but I don’t think it is ever thought about as a breakfast food. I thought that this super-grain would be great sweet and hot in the morning and I was right 🙂 So good and super nutritious. Love it!

Quinoa “Oatmeal”
serves 3

1 cup quinoa
1 cup almond milk
1 cup water
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons agave

Rinse the quinoa and add to saucepan with water and almond milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the dried cranberries and cinnamon and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the agave. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes until all liquid is absorbed.

I can’t promise to do this for ever recipe but I looked up the nutrition stats for this breakfast. 🙂
