The perfect, cooked, gluten-free, dairy-free morning meal.
- Rinse quinoa thoroughly a using an extra fine sieve. This removes any of the natural soapy, saponins that sometimes coat quinoa.
- Chop dates into small pieces and then add all ingredients to a pan (leaving out the cinnamon or berries, which will be added once served).
- Bring pan to the boil and simmer on a low heat for 25 minutes (or until the quinoa has absorbed all of the liquid). Stir once in a while with a wooden spoon. The dates should slowly fall apart melting into the pan to create a delicious sweetness. If the dates are particularly tough, then encourage the breaking down process by pressing them down with your spoon.
- Once cooked enjoy your quinoa bowl served hot or cold, adding a sprinkle of cinnamon and/or a small handful of fresh berries.
