Quinoa with Blueberries
- 1 cup of quinoa
- 1 cup of water
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp coconut oil or olive oil
- 1-2 tsp fresh blueberries or whichever fresh fruits you prefer
- 1/2 banana
- 1-2 tsp slivered almonds toasted or whichever nuts you prefer
- 1-2 tsp coconut chips unsweetened
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1-2 tsp honey, or maple syrup whichever you prefer
Rinse quinoa for about 3 minutes under cold water stirring constantly with a spatula, this step is very important or the quinoa will be very bitter. Once rinsed let quinoa drain for a minute or two in a colander.
In a small pot on medium heat add the coconut oil and then add the drained quinoa and toast in the pot for about 2 minutes, then slowly add the water, salt, and let boil for (1) one minute, cover the pot and simmer for 15 minutes.
Once quinoa is cooked let it stand for 5 minutes covered then fluff with a fork, add the remainder of the ingredients and enjoy. You can add any liquid to your dish it can be hot or cold soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk or cows milk I prefer mine dry and just warmed.
