Have breakfast for dinner. Quinoa is a complete protein, so it's good for you too!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup 1% low-fat organic milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup organic red quinoa (you can also use white but I just like red)
  • 1 box fresh strawberries, cut into small cubes
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 4 tsp honey
  • Stevia extract to taste

Directions

  • Combine milk, water, and quinoa in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 15 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed.
  • Turn off heat; let stand covered for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in berries, nuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, and stevia.
  • Transfer to plates, top with nuts, and drizzle 1 teaspoon honey over each serving.
