Coconut Milk Quinoa

Coconut Milk Quinoa

Quinoa, pronounced KEEN-wah, is a seed grain. It is commonly used in place of rice since it is a lighter carbohydrate. It also has more protein and fiber than white rice. It can be used in place of rice (dinner/lunch) and grain (breakfast) meals. 

Coconut Milk Quinoa

 
Ingredients 
1 cup of quinoa
1 cup of coconut milk (I use the vanilla flavored coconut milk)
Coconut sugar to taste 
Almonds
Blueberries 
 
In a medium pot bring coconut milk and quinoa to a boil.
 
Cook until the quinoa is soft or until the milk and quinoa together has thickened and remove from heat. You can add in about a teaspoon of coconut sugar to taste. For me, the almond milk has enough sweetness but when I make it for friends I add coconut sugar. Next you can top it with your favorite nuts and fresh fruit and enjoy. I added fresh handpicked blueberries and almonds. A quick and super easy breakfast item that taste delicious.
