Cook Quinoa In Milk For An Oatmeal-Free Breakfast
For a filling, protein-packed morning meal, switch your breakfast bowl of oatmeal for quinoa, which can be cooked with milk to achieve a porridge-like consistency.
To do so, boil 2 cups of milk in a saucepan, add a cup of rinsed quinoa, and wait for the liquid to boil again. Then, turn down the heat and cover the pan to let the milk simmer.
Once the grains have absorbed about ¾ of the milk, stir in brown sugar and cinnamon to sweeten it. Let it cook a little more until all of the milk is absorbed.
Make your breakfast quinoa creamier and sweeter with more milk and sugar, and garnish it with fresh fruits and nuts for a medley of flavors and textures.
White quinoa is the better variant to use for this since it becomes fluffy within a short cooking period, unlike the red and black ones that have a firmer consistency.
