• 2 cups low fat or nonfat milk
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • ¼ cup honey or brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, plus more to taste
  • ¼ cup sliced or slivered almonds
  • ¼ cup dried currants, chopped dried apricots, or fresh berries


1. Rinse the quinoa thoroughly.

2. Bring the milk to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the quinoa and return to a boil.

3. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until most of the liquid is absorbed (about 12-15 minutes).

4. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Stir in remaining ingredients, cover, and let stand for 15 minutes.
