Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Stovetop Instructions

  • Rinse and drain the quinoa.
  • In a small saucepan, add quinoa over medium heat and lightly toast it until it starts to make popping noises, about, 5-7 minutes.
  • Stir in almond milk, maple syrup, and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until quinoa is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow quinoa to set for 5 more minutes. 

Microwave Instructions

  • Rinse and drain the quinoa.
  • In a medium microwave-safe bowl, add quinoa, milk, maple syrup and salt. Cover with a lid or plate and microwave for 6 minutes. Stir and return to the microwave and cook for 3 more minutes. Remove from the microwave and allow quinoa to set for 5 more minutes. 

Assembly

  • Fluff the quinoa with a fork. Divide into four bowls and serve as you would oatmeal with fruits and toppings of your choice.
