quinoa, coconut milk and cinnamon

Recipe Ingredients for Sweet Quinoa

1 cup quinoa
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup coconut milk
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon honey

Recipe Directions for Sweet Quinoa

  1. Place water and quinoa in small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and cover for 12-15 minutes, until water is boiled out.

  2. Leave quinoa in saucepan and add coconut milk. Keep on simmer, cover and allow quinoa to soak up coconut milk. After about 15 minutes, add cinnamon and nutmeg. Once the quinoa is at a consistency of your liking, (depending on if you would rather it a bit more soupy or grainy) remove from saucepan and place in bowl. Let sit for 20 minutes to cool, then add honey. (Waiting is crucial so that the enzymes are not sacrificed in honey!)
