Banana Nut Quinoa

Posted on July 17, 2012

Quinoa can be cooked many different ways with a variety of spices, seasonings, or accompaniments. For a sweet change, I decided to make a more dessert-like quinoa dish!

Ingredients:

1c. Dry Quinoa (makes 4 servings)

1 Mashed banana

1-2tbl. Cinnamon (or to tasteā€¦I love cinnamon)

1 tsp. Nutmeg

1 tsp. Vanilla extract

7 Crushed walnuts halfs

Directions:

Cook quinoa according to directions on package. While boiling, add vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. When quinoa has soaked up most of the water but still has about 5 min left, add mashed bananas and crushed walnuts. Serve when quinoa has reached desired texture.
