Start out by rinsing 1/2 cup of golden quinoa. You know the drill with this stuff....rinse, rise, rinse ;) Then place 1/2 orange juice and 1 cup water in a saucepan or rice cooker. Bring to a boil the add the rinsed quinoa. Next, measure out and add to the pot 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, a dash or two of nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon orange zest. Now comes the hard part....cover it then walk away. I know...tough stuff right?
20-30 minutes later your quinoa will now be nice and cooked and ready. Top with fresh strawberries and add milk, cream, almond milk, whatever tickles your tastebuds. Then drizzle a bit of honey on top and BAM. You have a spicy, tangy, nutrient infused breakfast :)
