  • 1/3 cup whole quinoa, rinsed thoroughly
  • 1 cup coconut milk or nut milk
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • Pinch of unrefined salt
  • Spices, nuts or dried fruits (see note for topping ideas)


Place all ingredients in a small pot and soak overnight in the refrigerator.

To cook cereal, place it on the stovetop, covered, on low heat. Let simmer slowly for about 20 minutes (up to 1 hour for quinoa cereal), stirring occasionally. Add extra water if the cereal is too thick and enjoy warm.

Special notes:

After cooking, use an electric hand mixer to make smooth.
