Breakfast is a critical meal for me and Jane. We start work early and require healthy food to stay alert and productive. Quinoa is one breakfast food which helps us start our day with natural energy. Creamy, sweet, nutty and just really good.  This recipe is so easy it’s almost fool proof. Ok, Let’s Get Cooking!

Fresh berries, cubed mango, or sliced bananas (optional)

Method:

  1. Wash quinoa in cold water, then strain (use a colander that has fine mesh).
  2. Place 2 cups water in a 2 quart sauce pot that has a tight fitting lid.
  3. Add the butter and salt. Bring the water to a boil.
  4. Add the quinoa and bring back to a boil. Place the lid on the pot.
  5. Turn flame down to very low; the quinoa & water should simmer gently. Do not remove the lid.
  6. Cook for 20 minutes. Turn off the heat but do not remove the lid. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes as the quinoa will absorb any remaining moisture.
