Serves 2

1/2 cup of quinoa
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup coconut milk

1/8 teaspoon cardamon
2 tablespoons pepitas

1 tablespoon golden raisins
goji berries, chia seeds, banana and coconut flakes, to garnish

 

METHOD

  • Rinse quinoa until water runs clear and combine in a medium saucepan with water, coconut milk, and dates.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, or until quinoa has started to soften.
  • Add cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon, pepitas, shredded coconut and golden raisins.
  • Cook an additional five minutes, adding water if necessary, until quinoa is soft and fully cooked.
