Quinoa cereal with cinnamon: more protein than oatmeal

Cook’s notes: A delicious and filling way to eat leftover quinoa. Adapted from a recipe in Yum Universe.

SERVES 2.

1/4 cup pecan pieces
2 teaspoons coconut oil
1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed
1 teaspoon Chai Spice Mix
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Almond milk, about 1 cup
2 to 3 Tablespoons dried cranberries

Heat a saucepan over warm heat, and dry toast the pecan pieces for about 5 minutes. Add the coconut oil. When it melts, stir in the flaxseed and Chai Spices until well-mixed.

Stir in the quinoa, maple syrup, and salt. Stir in enough almond milk to give it the consistency of loose oatmeal. Stir in the dried cranberries. Stir the entire mixture together until heated through.

Serve warm quinoa in a bowl.
