This is a really yummy alternative to Oatmeal (not that there’s anything wrong with Oatmeal – it’s very good for you! Just a nice, healthy change of pace). It’s our new favorite!
1 cup quinoa
2 cups coconut milk*
2 tablespoons honey or pure maple syrup
3/4 cup dried apples, chopped (or more 😉
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
*A 15-ounce can of coconut milk contains a little less than 2 cups. Add a little water to make up the difference.
Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan. Stir … Bring to a simmer over medium/medium-high heat. Then, turn the heat down to low, cover, and allow it to gently simmer for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow the quinoa mixture to rest for 5 minutes covered. Remove the cover and toss the quinoa with a fork. Enjoy warm.
I like to serve it with some fresh fruit – in this case some Pomegranate jems :). ENJOY!
