Keen-what? Keen-whaa

I saw this recipe on facebook and I have some leftover Quinoa from last night's dinner so that is what I am having for my second meal today.  I eat five or six times a day. 
Warm Cinnamon Raisin Quinoa Breakfast
Serves: 2

  • 1 cup Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened Vanilla almondmilk
  • ½ cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ Tablespoon chia seeds (or ground flax seed)
  • 2 Tablespoons raisins
  • 1 Tablespoon almond butter (optional)

  1. Rinse quinoa and drain.
  2. Place almondmilk and quinoa into a small sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  3. Add cinnamon and vanilla.
  4. Reduce to a simmer and cook about 15 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed. **Watch the pot carefully and stir often because it has a tendency to want to boil over.
  5. When ready to eat, place a portion of the quinoa into a bowl, drizzle with maple syrup and top with chia seeds, raisins and nut butter.
