Breakfast Quinoa With Dried Cranberries Toasted Walnuts And Honey

Instructions:
Place the quinoa in a fine strainer and rinse it under water until the water runs clear. Fill a medium saucepan with the water and add a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then stir in the quinoa. Cover and summer by reducing the heat to low. Cook until the quinoa has absorbed almost all the water, 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and set the quinoa aside to finish cooking.

Next, toast the walnuts by heating them in a small skillet over high heat. Stir them often until they begin to generate an aroma and darken slightly in color, 3 minutes. Remove from the heat to cool.

Uncover the quinoa and fluff with a fork. Next, place the pan with the quinoa over medium heat. Whisk in the milk, butter, and brown sugar. Let simmer for 5 minutes, stirring often and adding more milk until it’s as thick or thin as you like. Add the cranberries and the walnuts. Pour the quinoa into bowls and drizzle to taste with honey.
