2 cups (500 mL) milk
2 tbsp (25 mL) packed golden brown sugar
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
1/4 tsp (1 mL) cinnamon
1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) salt
1/2 cup (125 mL) quinoa, thoroughly rinsed and drained

Combine milk, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Stir in quinoa. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until most of liquid is absorbed and quinoa is tender, about 25 – 30 minutes. Serves 2 - 3.

Cook's Note: The outer hull of quinoa contains a bitter resin called saponin. Quinoa must be rinsed thoroughly before cooking in order to remove this bitter coating.
