Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Quinoa Recipe

Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Quinoa Recipe


1/2 cup milk – I used almond milk but any milk will work
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Pinch of salt
2-4 tablespoons chopped pecans


Bring milk and water to a boil in a small to medium sized saucepan.  Add quinoa, cover, reduce heat to simmer, and let cook 15 minutes.  Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.  Uncover and fluff with a fork, then stir in the pumpkin, maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.  Taste and adjust any amounts to your liking (i.e. add more sweetness or spices).  Divide into two bowls (add milk if desired) and top with desired amount of pecans.
