1 cup cooked quinoa
1-2 cups milk of choice (almond, coconut, hemp)
splash of vanilla extract
chopped apple and pear
freshly squeezed orange juice
dash of salt
optional toppings: drizzle of maple syrup, nuts/nut butter, coconut flakes, cacao nibs, pomegranate seeds
Place chopped apple and pear into a small pot and add cinnamon, a squeeze of orange, and a touch of water. Put the lid on and cook for 5 minutes or until fruit has slightly softened. If you are in a time crunch, you can skip this step and proceed to step 2.
Add the cooked quinoa, milk, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon to the fruit. You can also add the sliced banana to naturally sweeten the quinoa. Stir and cook until quinoa and milk are warmed through.
Taste and adjust for seasoning. Add more liquid if it is too thick for your liking.
Pour into a bowl and add desired toppings. Enjoy!
