My apartment seems to be located in a wind tunnel, or so I thought when I woke up to the wind howling this morning. I was going to brave it and go for a run, but then the rain started pouring and I decided that what I wanted more than a run was something warm and sweet.
I’ve been thinking a lot about oatmeal- really good, creamy oatmeal (the stuff that is really not good for you, aside from containing oats). I don’t have any oats on hand, but I do have quinoa, so I decided to try cooking the quinoa in milk to make a creamy porridge.
Spoiler alert? It’s delicious. And filling!
- 2 cups milk (I used almond milk)
- 1 cup quinoa
- 1 tbsp butter
- 3 tbsp brown sugar (you could substitute this with agave or your “healthy” sugar of choice)
- fresh fruit to top
combine all ingredients except for the fruit and bring to a boil
reduce heat to medium low (about a 3 on your stove) and let sit, covered, for about 20 minutes
top with fresh fruit
this will make 4 small servings or 2 bigger ones.
