much love monday: quinoa oatmeal

this post comes to you from a very unusual situation here in the cat cave: I HAVE NOTHING FOR BREAKFAST.  out of almond milk. no apples.  no bread.  no flour.  what on earth!  sometimes when i’m working a lot i kind of forget about this stuff…oops.  i’m working at the market today, and if i leave early i can get breakfast before i start.

anyway, here’s what is on my brain: i discovered quinoa oatmeal last week and it’s the best thing.

this makes one average-sized bowl of quinoa oatmeal:
1/2 c quinoa
1/2 c water + 1/2 c milk substitute, or 1 c milk sub.

bring water + milk to a boil, add quinoa. cover and simmer for approx 15 mins. turn off the heat and let sit 5 mins. spoon into a bowl and add dried fruit, nuts, flax seeds, honey, maple syrup, cinnamon–whatever your heart desires. sweet baby jesus, this is so much better than oatmeal. i can’t even tell you. just make it and you’ll see.

  1. apparently porridge-y goodness is the favourite andean way to eat quinoa! just like this, but with cinnamon and cardamon steeped in, and agave as sweetener.
    also in peru they make quinoa pancakes! nomnomnom
