1 cup Honeyville Organic Quinoa
2 cups Vanilla Almond Milk
2 Cinnamon Sticks
1/2 tsp Ground Cloves
Pinch of Salt
2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
3/4 cup Pumpkin Puree
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
First, clean your quinoa.
To do this, rinse it in a strainer under cold water. This will help to wash away any of the bitter taste.
In a large sauce pan or pot, add almond milk, cinnamon sticks, and ground cloves, and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
Stir in quinoa, cover and turn heat to low. Boil for 15 minutes, or until quinoa has fully absorbed the milk.
Once cooked, remove from heat, remove the cinnamon sticks, and stir in pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and maple syrup. Scoop up and serve.
