You can make a big batch of this and have it all week. It’s good warm or cold!
Quinoa Oatmeal

1 cup organic red, white or black Organic quinoa
2 cups soy milk, almond milk or skim milk


1/4 cup dried goji berries or cranberries or roasted nuts
1 teaspoon Watkins cinnamon or cardamom whatever suits you!
1 tablespoon raw sugar, agave nectar or organic maple syrup

Place quinoa in a fine sieve and rinse well under cold water. Add quinoa into a small saucepan then add the milk. While stirring with wooden spoon, carefully bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer for 5 minutes or until desired consistency.

Add fruit and cinnamon then simmer for 8-10 or until all liquid is absorbed. Add or subtract milk to get the consistency you prefer.

Stir in agave nectar. Serve topped with fruit or cashews and milk.

Chef Note: I precook quinoa in water and freeze in zip lock bags. For my breakfast I use 1 cup cooked quinoa and 1 cup quinoa oatmeal flakes (found at price smart organic bulk) in 2 cups soy milk cook on stove for 5 minutes careful not to boil over. When done I sprinkle Watkins cinnamon over top. The cinnamon is pure Korintje cinnamon with no fillers, it has a wonderful sweet flavor so no sugar is necessary for me. Enjoy!
