Magical Mint Quinoa Pudding

Quinoa for breakfast is always fun and creamy.  I decided to jazz it up recently with some mint.  The mint flakes made this all natural filling breakfast taste light and refreshing as well as satisfying.  Make some now!  You will need:
Quinoa of choice (I used basic white/yellow quinoa)
  • Milk of choice (I used almond)
  • Sweetener of choice
  • Mint flakes
  • Pinch of salt (optional)
  • Vanilla (optional) 
  1. Rinse and sort the quinoa, and then place it in the slow cooker with milk in a ratio of approximately 1 part quinoa to 3 or 4 parts milk, and so the slow cooker is ~3/4 full (note that this is a greater ratio of milk to quinoa than prescribed on most boxes, to get a soft, pudding-type consistency; if you want a more traditional quinoa texture, follow box directions for the proportion of milk to quinoa).
  2. Add remaining ingredients to taste.
  3. Cook on low overnight or until soft and creamy.
  4. Stir, taste, and adjust seasoning if necessary. 
  5. Enjoy!
