Cinnamon-Orange Quinoa Porridge
You’ve snubbed rice for it, stuffed peppers with it, and paired it with endless combinations of veggies and herbs for salads and sides. But have you had quinoa for breakfast? Chewy, like oatmeal, with a nuttier taste and greater amounts of protein and fiber, quinoa simmers into a perfect porridge when cooked with almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla and other naturally sweet spices. A splash of orange juice and a little orange zest – not to mention serving it in a pretty hollowed-out orange – makes this dish a bright start to any day.

2 cups almond milk
1 cup quinoa
1 tsp. vanilla extract
½-1 tsp. cinnamon
1/ tsp. nutmeg
2 Tbsp. orange juice
3 Tbsp. coconut palm sugar
1 tsp. orange zest

- In saucepan, combine almond milk and quinoa; heat over medium heat, stirring in vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and coconut palm sugar.
- Slowly bring mixture to a light bowl, then increase heat to create strong boil. Let boil for a minute, then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 20 minutes or until quinoa is tender.
