Hot breakfast cereal made with quinoa, maple syrup, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice. Healthy, protein-rich, and delicious for crisp fall mornings.
To a saucepan over medium-high heat, add the water, pumpkin pie spice, salt, maple syrup, pumpkin, and rinsed quinoa. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover, allowing to simmer for 15 minutes or until water is cooked out and quinoa is tender. Transfer hot quinoa to a bowl, top with milk, pecans, a drizzle of maple syrup (as desired for more sweetness) and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. Serve.
