You guys. I’m sick. Like days in bed, looks like a truck ran over me, after I was trampled by a heard of antelope. That kind of sick. Which is no bueno, especially mid-summer! BUT what is making me feel a little bit better is this yummy oatmeal & quinoa breakfast.
- 2 cups whole or low-fat milk, plus more for serving or as desired
- 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
- 1/2 cup steel oats
- 3 tablespoons light-brown sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon or maple syrup
Bring milk to a boil in a small saucepan. Add quinoa, and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, until three-quarters of the milk has been absorbed, about 15 minutes. Stir in sugar and cinnamon. Cook, covered, until almost all the milk has been absorbed, about 8 minutes. Garnish with berries, nuts, more brown sugar or whatever you want!
