Quinoa Berry Breakfast Bowl


* 1 cup milk
* 1 cup water
* 1/2 tsp cinnamon
* 1/3 cup chopped pecans, lightly roasted
* 4 tsp agave nectar
* 1 cup quinoa, well-rinsed
* 2 cups fresh blackberries, or any berries in season


1. In a medium saucepan, combine quinoa, water, and milk and bring to a boil over high heat.
2. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer over medium heat for fifteen minutes, until most of the liquid is absorbed.
3. While the quinoa is cooking, roast the pecans in a dry skillet for three minutes on medium heat or in a toaster oven at 350 degrees F for about five or six minutes.
4. Remove from heat and let stand covered for five minutes.
5. Stir in cinnamon and blackberries, then transfer to four bowls and top with roasted pecans. Drizzle one teaspoon of agave nectar over each serving. Makes four servings.

If you've tried all these breakfast cereals and you're looking for something entirely new AND packed with nutrients, give quinoa a try. Quinoa is NOT a grain - it's a seed - so it is gluten free. Also, quinoa happens to be a super-source of protein, in fact all the amino acids your body needs.

Try a variety of flavorings, different berries, and even give coconut milk a try instead of cow's milk. Once you get the quinoa cooking perfected, the sky's the limit.

Agave nectar is a healthier alternative to sugar. However, if you don't have, or don't want to buy, agave, use a bit of natural honey. Either way, this is a sweet breakfast treat that is sure to please. Enjoy!
