1 ½cupdairy-free milk – we use oat milk or almond milk
¾cupquick cooking quinoa
2tablespoonsstrawberry jam – we make an easy homemade microwave jam but you can used store-bought too
Pour the quinoa into a fine mesh colander and rinse under running water for around 30 seconds. Drain well. This step removes any bitterness on the outside of the quinoa caused by naturally occurring saponins
Combine the rinsed quinoa and 1 ½ cup milk, ½ cup water, 2 tablespoons of strawberry jam, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract and pinch of salt in a saucepan.
Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat about 3 minutes, then decrease the heat to low for a gentle simmer.
Cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes until the quinoa has absorbed all of the liquid
Remove the pot from heat and let stand for 5 more minutes, covered.
