How to Make It
Stir together 1 1/2 cups almond milk*, uncooked quinoa, water, granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, almond extract, and salt in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Spoon into 4 bowls; top each with 1/4 cup fresh blueberries, 1 Tbsp. chopped toasted almonds, 2 Tbsp. almond milk, 1/2 tsp. light brown sugar, and 1/2 tsp. loosely packed lemon zest.
*Low-fat milk may be substituted.
