Ingredients

Quinoa

  • 1/2 Cup Quinoa rinsed
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 Chai Tea Bag
  • 1/2 Tbs Coconut Palm Sugar optional

Toppings

  • Pecans
  • Coconut
  • Cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Before cooking, be sure to rinse quinoa well. This removes saponin (quinoa’s natural coating), which can make quinoa bitter.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine almond milk, quinoa, and chai tea bag, and bring to a boil. Once almond milk is boiling, remove the chai tea bag. Add coconut sugar (if desired) and stir. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook quinoa, covered, for about 15-20 minutes.
  3. When quinoa is done, remove from heat and keep covered for another 5-10 minutes so almond milk can fully absorb.
  4. To serve, put quinoa in a bowl with a little more warmed milk.
