Peach Quinoa

Hey, I’ve been away for awhile. Life happens… Face it better with a good breakfast. This one couldn’t be easier.

Peach Quinoa Porridge
4 servings

1 cup quinoa
2 cups water

Per serving:

Pinch salt
Dash cinnamon
Dash cardamom
Dash nutmeg
Honey to taste
1 fresh peach or nectarine, diced
1/4 c. whole milk

Very important: Rinse and drain the quinoa in a mesh strainer. Put 1 part quinoa to 2 parts fresh water in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil; then turn heat to low, cover, and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Check it, if still seems pretty wet then let it cook for another 5 minutes or so. If all the water has been absorbed, replace the cover, remove from heat, and let stand for 10 minutes. Fluff it with a fork.

Prepare as below and serve immediately, or let it cool and keep it in the fridge to heat up one serving at a time:

For each serving, stir in salt, spices, honey, peaches, and milk. Microwave for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.

As I was typing this up, I realized toasted nuts such as pecans or walnuts would make this even better…
