Quinoa Breakfast Porridge

Quinoa Breakfast Porridge

Since we've been cooking up big batches of quinoa lately, I thought I'd share another recipe for you to enjoy this superfood for breakfast.  This quinoa porridge is inspired by my sister-in-law Chrissy's favorite oatmeal recipe made with cinnamon, vanilla, almond milk, and coconut. I've also topped it with chopped dates and walnuts. You can top it with whatever you'd like--bananas, sliced almonds, chia seeds, blueberries, etc.  Enjoy!
To cook quinoa: Use 1 cup of uncooked quinoa to 2 cups of liquid. Make sure quinoa is rinsed well. Bring quinoa and water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
