Description

Hot breakfast cereal made with quinoa, maple syrup, pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. Healthy, protein-rich and delicious for crisp fall mornings.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Water
  • ½ teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1-½ teaspoon Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon Pumpkin Puree
  • ½ cups Quinoa, Rinsed And Drained
  • Milk, Pecans, Pure Maple Syrup And/Or Pumpkin Pie Spice, For Garnish And Serving

Preparation

Into a saucepan over medium-high heat, add the water, pumpkin pie spice, salt, maple syrup, pumpkin and rinsed quinoa. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover, allowing to simmer for 15 minutes or until water is cooked out and quinoa is tender. Transfer hot quinoa to a bowl and top with milk, pecans, a drizzle of maple syrup (as desired for more sweetness) and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. Serve.

Notes: Walnuts can be used in lieu of pecans, if you prefer.

I’ve made this for breakfast a few times now and really like how hardy it is. This morning, I finally added the pecans (that I put in the toaster over for a few minutes while the quinoa was cooking) and it was all the more delicious.
