Breakfast Quinoa

as i've stated- quinoa is a recent discovery in our house & we're currently still in the newelywed stage of our love affair with it.
we often discuss how awesome it is & how we want to eat it all day every day.

so why not for breakfast- yes? YES!

Breakfast Quinoa (adapted from Martha Stewart)
You Need:
2 cups of milk
1 cup of quinoa, rinsed
3 tblsp light brown sugar
1/8 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 cup fresh blueberries (or other fruit)

Directions: In a medium saucepan, bring the milk to a boil. Add the quinoa & return to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, until 3/4 of the milk has been absorbed (about 15 min)
Stir in the cinnamon & sugar & pinch of salt. Cook, still covered, until almost all of the remaining milk has been absorbed. (another 5-8 min or so).
Remove from the heat & spoon into bowls. Sprinkle with a little more cinnamon & brown sugar. Toss in a handful of blueberries & add mroe milk (if you like it that way- which i do)
