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
- 1 cup of quinoa
- 1 cup of coconut milk I use the vanilla flavored coconut milk
- Coconut sugar to taste
- 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 then 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 tastes delicious.
