Vanilla Bean & Pecan Breakfast Quinoa

Remember the day my husband ate all the breakfast food in the house?

Well, I managed to come up with this:

Vanilla Bean & Pecan Breakfast Quinoa

Time: 25 minutes   Serves 2


  • 1/2 c. quinoa, rinsed
  • 3/4 c. unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 c. chopped pecans (optional- add pecan halves for garnish)

I like to cook quinoa in the rice cooker so I tossed all of the ingredients in and let it work it’s magic.  If you prefer to use a saucepan, combine all ingredients and cook over medium heat until the quinoa has absorbed the milk.

Fair warning, your husband might only let you have 2 bites then finish the rest himself.
