How to Make Quinoa Hot Cereal
- Cook cereal. Bring water quinoa and oats and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer.
- Add cinnamon and vanilla. Remove from heat and stir in the cinnamon, vanilla and raisins.
- Serve. I’ve added some banana slices and a handful of blueberries (because I’m a creature of habit this way), but you could add your favorite fruits/berries and nuts and seeds. Drizzle a little honey or maple syrup over this breakfast cereal to give it just a touch of sweetness and serve with some oat milk (or your favorite nut milk).
How to Reheat Cereal
- Add the cooked cereal to a saucepan with a little water or oat milk (or your favorite nut milk) to the cereal over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until warmed through.
