• Quinoa Oatmeal

    1 cup steel cut oats

    ½ cup quinoa

    1 teaspoon olive or coconut oil

    4 cups water

    ½ cup almond milk

    Heat up the water in a kettle on the stovetop or in the microwave until it is near boiling. Put the quinoa in a strainer and rinse so it isn’t bitter after you cook it. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat and add the steel cut oats. Stir them around and cook until they smell kinda toasty, like 1-2 minutes. Add the quinoa and the water and bring it all to a boil (this won’t take long because the water should already be hot). Turn down the heat on the pot and let it simmer. Let it cook for about 20 minutes. It should taste done now, not hard but still a little chewy. Add the milk and turn off the heat. Serve with fresh fruit, nuts, or whatever helps get you through your day. Enjoy!
