Warm breakfast cereals are a great start on a cold winter morning. Quinoa cooks quickly which makes it a perfect choice for breakfast. It's also packed with nutrition that will energize your child for a busy day.
1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
1/4 cup diced apples
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
In a saucepan add quinoa and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add apples and cinnamon; cover and simmer until water is absorbed (about 10 more minutes). Serve with milk and sweeten to taste with maple syrup.
Makes 4 toddler or 2 adult servings.
