Quinoa Hot Breakfast Cereal

I’ve loved oatmeal all my life, the ¬†creamy texture of it set off against crumbled brown sugar, melting into the cream poured over it. Sometimes I’d add cinnamon and apples, or even get the seasoned instant in a pouch variety…it was all good. Unfortunately, my body and mouth are in disagreement on the topic and my body won. So, no more oatmeal.

I don’t generally enjoy foods that are made to simulate the flavours of others. Rather, I look for combinations that give me similar sensations on eating. I’ve tried, but did not enjoy rolled quinoa…too gummy. I tried a few things and this is my favourite preparation. Succanat is a sugar cane product made by drying cane juice. If you don’t have succanat, use maple syrup if you have it (but at the end) or brown sugar.
