1/2cupmilk(can use almond/cashew/coconut milk)
1teaspoonmaple syrup(increase to 1 tablespoon for more sweetness)
Measure out quinoa and put into a fine-mesh strainer. Rinse under tap water for a few minutes, tossing and swirling the quinoa with your hand. (Rinsing the quinoa prevents it from tasting bitter.) Drain completely.
Add rinsed quinoa to a small saucepan, then add water, milk, vanilla, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Turn on heat to medium-high, and bring quinoa to a boil.
Reduce heat to a simmer, and cover the saucepan. Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for a further 5 minutes.
Remove the lid and fluff with a fork. Portion into bowls and add a splash more milk, additional maple syrup, sliced banana, pecans, or any of your favourite fruits or nuts.
Recipe yields approximately 2-3 portions. To serve 4-5, just double the recipe.
