Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa (any variety)
  • 2 cup water
  • 2 peaches (apples work, too!), diced
  • 1/4 tsp. + 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 Tbsp. pure maple syrup, divided
  • splash fresh lemon juice
  • assorted toppings: nut butters, chia seeds, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, coconut sugar, etc.

Instructions

  1. Add diced peach to a small pot with 2 Tbsp. maple syrup, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, lemon juice, and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, and cook, stirring frequently, until peaches are tender and have slightly caramelized. Remove from the pot with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  2. Add water and quinoa to the pot (without wiping it down). Add another 1/8 tsp. cinnamon, and cook according to package instructions. When finished, remove excess water, and stir in an additional Tbsp. maple syrup.
  3. To assemble: Add quinoa to a bowl. Top with caramelized peaches and any desired toppings. I chose almond butter, chia seeds, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and a touch of coconut sugar.
