Breakfast Quinoa

I was reading the Eat Like Me blog on and found this recipe there. If you are looking for some new ideas, this is a great place to find them. You of course have to scale down the portions, sometimes, but the ideas for different meals are great! Especially this one, me being in such a breakfast rut...

Breakfast Quinoa:

2 cups Vanilla Soy Milk
1 cup Whole Grain Quinoa
2 tbsp Dried Cranberries
2 tbsp Almonds (she uses pecans, I didn't have those on hand)

Take the soy milk and bring it to a boil. Keep an eye on it, this happens suddenly! I almost had a nasty cleaning job on my hands. Once boiling add in the quinoa, dropping the temperature to the lowest your stove will allow and cook until the milk is absorbed.

I took 3/4 cup of the quinoa and topped it with about 1 tbsp dried cranberries and the same amount of almonds. It's incredibly yummy, protein packed and has healthy carbs to boot! I highly reccomend this meal. I couldn't even finish mine, it's so filling!

Enjoy the food porn:
