Warm and Nutty Cinnamon Quinoa
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1 cup quinoa*
2 cups berries (I used a frozen triple berry mix, thawed)
1/2 t cinnamon
1/3 cup pecans, toasted (you can use whatever nuts you like)**
honey or agave, to taste
In a medium pan mix together milk, water and quinoa. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed (about 15 minutes). Add the berries and cinnamon and fold to combine. Top with nuts and honey.
*Some quinoa needs to be rinsed before using otherwise you get a bitter taste. I use Bob's Red Mill and have never had this happen but I know other brands can be bitter if not rinsed before using.
** To toast nuts place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and cook in a 350 oven for 5-7 minutes.
