Warm and Nutty Cinnamon Breakfast Quinoa

Make this protein- and fiber-packed breakfast dish part of the morning routine and feel like a champion. Feel free to try brown rice or oatmeal in place of quinoa; swap in almond, soy, or coconut milk for milk; substitute fresh fruit for the dried cranberries; or use chopped walnuts or pecans instead of the toasted almonds.

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups milk
  • 1 Cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 Teaspoon unrefined sea salt

  • Natural sweetener, such as stevia, honey, or agave, to taste (optional)
  • Toasted almond slices, for serving

Directions

Boil the milk in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the cooked quinoa, sea salt, cinnamon, and natural sweetener, if using, and cover.
