Spiced Pumpkin Breakfast Quinoa Bowls


On a crisp fall morning, a steaming bowl of Spiced Pumpkin Breakfast Quinoa is the perfect way to ward off the autumn chill.



2 cups milk

1 cup quinoa

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Pinch of salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ cup canned pumpkin

¼ cup brown sugar

¼ cup toasted almonds

¼ cup dried cranberries

1 apple (diced)


  1. Combine milk, quinoa, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and vanilla extract in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat and then reduce the heat to low. Cover the saucepan and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until most of the milk has been absorbed. Turn off the heat and let the quinoa stand covered for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and stir in the pumpkin.
  2. To serve, divide pumpkin quinoa between bowls and top with brown sugar, almonds, cranberries and diced apple.
