I have all this quinoa because I bought it for this one recipe once upon a time; there is a lot of it because I bought it at Target and it came in a 1 pound bag. Unfortunately, it turns out my fiancé hates quinoa. I can’t even trick him into eating it – I try sneaking it into things and he knows! Now what? I hate to throw it away but….
So I started googling different ways to eat quinoa and was intrigued by porridge made of quinoa. Bonus: The fiancé and I don’t eat the same things for breakfast anyway!
- 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 cup water
- 1 tbsp ground flax
- 1/2 tsp double strength vanilla
- 1/4 tsp cardamom
- 1/2 tbsp raw honey
- 1 cup frozen cherries
- unsweetened shredded coconut for sprinkling
Add quinoa, coconut milk, water, flax, vanilla, cardamom and honey to medium sauce pan. Bring to boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium. Boil for 15 minutes stirring occasionally. Add frozen cherries and boil for 5 additional minutes. Serve topped with shredded coconut – yum!
makes 4 servings
I put my remaining 3 servings in jars in the refrigerator and intend to eat them cold in the coming mornings.
As a side note, I made the fiancé try this – he still hates quinoa. Bummer.
