I used almond-coconut milk and added 1/8 tsp. of cardamom and allspice to more closely mimic my favorite chai. It was fast and delicious. Let it sit for a few minutes before eating to let everything meld together. It's a keeper.

8 Reviews for Spiced Breakfast Quinoa
It's worth making just for the amazing smells from those spices. The quinoa had an interesting texture that I'm not sure I like so next time I'll make it with regular oat meal.
I really enjoyed making this on a frosty morning as something different to try. The texture reminded me of cream of wheat. I do enjoy a Chai Latte every so often and this was definitely in that spice arena. I didn't have raisins or currants on hand so I used dates. I felt that it did need something after making it. I added more honey because I was out of dates that rounded it out nicely. I will be making this again but with figs next time.
