Breakfast Quinoa with Blueberries

Nice weather is (mostly) here, and that makes me one happy girl. At this very moment I am working outside while my little boys run around and play "castle" in our bushes. I have longed for this moment for seven months and it is finally here! Pinch me! Dan and I both make most of our money in the summers, so it is a very busy but good and productive season for us. Welcome, summer!

I have had this lonely box of quinoa sitting in my pantry for a while now. The other night Dan and I had fed the boys since they adore eating at their little table outside when the weather is nice. We were feeling lazy and didn't know what to make for ourselves. I remembered the box of quinoa and thought about transforming it into a breakfast! For dinner! Scandalous!  

In a medium saucepan, combine:

1 cup quinoa

1 cup water

1 cup almond milk

Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 15 minutes, or until the liquid has been absorbed.

Remove from the heat and add:

2 tablespoons honey

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix well and divide between 4 serving bowls. Sprinkle with blueberries, or fresh fruit of your choice, and serve!

Enjoy!
