Fruited Breakfast Quinoa

  • Makes : about 3 cups

Quinoa is a highly nutritious grain that was a staple in the diet of the ancient Incas. It has a delicious flavor and a light, fluffy texture. It is important to rinse the grain thoroughly prior to cooking.


  • 1/2 cup rinsed quinoa
  • 1-1/2 cups vanilla rice milk
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 1 cup chopped fresh or canned apricots
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


Step 1

To thoroughly rinse quinoa, cover it with water in a mixing bowl, then rub it between the palms of your hands. Pour off the cloudy liquid through a strainer and then repeat the process two or three more times, until the rinse liquid remains clear.

Step 2

In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the rinsed and drained quinoa with rice milk. Bring to a slow simmer, then cover and cook for about 15 minutes until the quinoa is tender. Stir in the remaining ingredients, then transfer about 1-1/2 cups to a blender; purée.

Return puréed mixture to the pan and stir to mix. Serve warm or chilled.
