2 cups or right for your type milk (rice, hemp, almond, etc…), plus more for serving
1 cup organic quinoa, rinsed
3 tablespoons agave
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon or nutmeg (depending on your type – or a combo of both), plus more for serving
1 cup (1/2 pint) fresh blueberries, diced apple, sliced apple or other beneficial fruits, plus more for serving
1/4 cup beneficial nuts
1. Bring milk to a boil in a small saucepan. Add quinoa, and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, until three-quarters of the milk has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.
2. Stir in agave and cinnamon/nutmeg. Cook, covered, until almost all the milk has been absorbed, about 8 minutes. Stir in fruit, and cook for 30 seconds. Serve with additional milk, cinnamon/nutmeg, and fruit and top with nuts.
