SUNRISE HOT CEREAL WITH QUINOA
Break-up your oatmeal routine and try quinoa for breakfast. Quinoa is a high-fiber whole grain, offering 5 gm of total fiber and 2 gm of cholesterol-lowering soluble fiber per 1 cup. Soy milk and almonds provide additional LDL cholesterol-lowering benefits.
Serving Size: ¾ cup | Yield: 2 ½ cups or 5 servings | Method: Cook
white quinoa, rinsed
plain soy milk, plus more for serving
toasted almonds, sliced
pure vanilla extract
orange zest, fresh
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Toast sliced almonds on a sheet pan, single layer until lightly browned or approximately 6 minutes.
- Bring soy milk to a boil in a saucepan. Add quinoa and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes or until most of the milk is absorbed or has a creamy, thick texture.
- Stir in honey, vanilla, cranberries, and orange zest. Mix well and take off heat. The cereal should have a creamy, thick texture like oatmeal. Add additional soy milk as needed.
- Garnish each 1/2 cup with 1 tbsp toasted almonds. Serve with additional soy milk as needed
