Breakfast Quinoa 4 servings
1/.2 c. uncooked quinoa
3/4 c. coconut milk (canned)
2 T. water
1 T. brown sugar
pinch of salt
1/4 c. unsweetened coconut
1 c. sliced strawberries
1 c. sliced banana
or any fruit you would like
While you are preparing the quinoa, preheat the oven to 400 degrees
Place the quinoa in a very fine sieve, and the sieve in a large bowl. Cove the quinoa with water. Using your hands, rub the grains together for 30 seconds; rinse and drain the quinoa. Repeat this procedure, and drain well.
Combine the quinoa, coconut milk, water, brown sugar and salt in a medium size saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally during the last couple of minutes of cooking.
While the quinoa cooks, spread the coconut in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 5 minutes until golden brown. Cool slightly.
Place 1/2 cup of the quinoa mixture in a bowl. Top each serving with the 1/4 cup strawberries and 1/4 c. banana slices. Then top with 1 tablespoon toasted coconut. Serve warm.
