Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 tablespoon salted butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk or your preferred milk
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 15 oz can sliced peaches drained & chopped (I used about 3/4 of the can - use more or less to your liking)
  • optional - additional maple syrup for drizzling and/or whipped cream

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan, combine cooked quinoa & butter over low heat, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted.
  • Add almond milk, honey, maple syrup, cinnamon & vanilla extract. Stir well to combine and continue to cook over low heat, stirring once or twice, for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and gently stir in blueberries & peaches.
  • Serve warm or cold. Drizzle with additional maple syrup if you'd like and/or top with whipped cream. Enjoy ♥
  • *NOTE*
  • I used leftover cooked quinoa I had on hand. If you need to make 2 cups cooked quinoa:
  • You will need 3/4 cup raw quinoa, 1 1/2 cup water & a pinch of salt.
  • Rinse quinoa.
  • Combine rinsed quinoa & water in a medium saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low & cover.
  • Cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat & let sit, still covered for an additional 5 minutes. Fluff with fork.
  • You could then add ingredients needed for recipe.
