- Pour 2 cups cold water, quinoa and salt into a SMALL POT. Bring to a boil, lower to temperature to simmer, cover pot, and cook for 15 minutes.
- In a SMALL SKILLET, toast the almonds over medium low heat. Remove from heat and reserve.
- Add almond milk, chia seeds & flax seeds to the porridge.
- Scoop the porridge into BOWLS, sprinkle with almonds and fruit, and pass the maple syrup and a SMALL of almond milk at the table.
Any quinoa works, but tri-color quinoa makes a more intriguing looking finished cereal. Oat milk, while difficult to find, is a tasty substitution for the almond milk. Apples or other seasonal fruit may be substituted for the pear.
