Surprisingly, it's also one of the easier hot breakfasts to put together. You will need:
- Cinnamon, to taste
- Sweetener of choice, to taste (I used stevia)
- Salt to taste (a dash is usually enough)
- Milk of choice (I used unsweeteend almond milk)
- Fruit topping (optional, I used grapes)
- Inspect and rinse the quinoa (some boxes come pre-washed, and if so this step is unnecessary).
- Combine all ingredients in a small slow cooker (I used a 1.5 quart slow cooker). You will want to use more milk/liquid for each serving of quinoa than recommended on box instructions, probably 1.5 to 2 times as much and possibly even more than that.
- Cook on low overnight or until creamy. Overcooking a bit is okay, just make sure that your cooker is sufficiently fully (2/3+) so that nothing gets burnt.
- Adjust seasoning. Serve with sliced fruit, if desired.
- Enjoy! It's yummy hot or cold.
I ate the entire portion, but it did make quite a lot, and I would imagine for those with smaller appetites or serving bowls it might serve two. If you have any leftovers, this should keep for 2-3 days in the fridge, and tastes pretty good cold as well.
