Quinoa Morning Cereal

Serves 2


½ cup red quinoa
1½ cup water
¼ cup chopped almonds
½ cup blueberries, fresh or dried
2 tablespoons maple syrup (more if your tooth is sweeter than mine!)
1 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
1 teaspoon cinnamon, freshly grated


In a medium saucepan, add the quinoa and the water, and begin to boil. Reduce to a rolling low boil, and cook for about 5 to 6 minutes. Add the almonds, blueberries, maple syrup and the nutmeg and cinnamon. Cook on a low rolling bowl for another 6 minutes, stirring constantly until soft and porridge like.
