This is a great morning cereal and a fabulous way to start to the day. I’ve now had it 3 days in a row!
2/3 cup water
3 Tbsp quinoa
2 Tbsp quick-cooking rolled oats *
1-2 tsp maple syrup, honey or brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp flax seeds (ground or whole)
2 Tbsp blueberries, fresh frozen and thawed (I used blackberries and will use whatever I have on hand.)
Milk, half-and-half cream or vanilla yogurt (optional)**
*you can use old-fashioned rolled oats, see adjustment to cooking in directions.
**vegan substitution, soymilk or almond milk
Place the water and quinoa in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and cover.
Reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. (If using old-fashioned rolled oats, add them to the mixture after 7 minutes of cooking time.)
Stir in the oats, cover and continue to cook for another 5 minutes, until the oats are tender.
Remove from heat. Stir in the maple syrup and flax. Fold in the blueberries and top with milk, cream or yogurt, if using.
