Caramelized Peaches with Toasted Quinoa

 So it is a great time to enjoy fresh peaches. I buy frozen peaches all year long, but nothing captures the flavor of a fresh peach if it is ripe. This is a fun way to incorporate peaches into your breakfast.

Toasted Quinoa


1 C washed quinoa Bob Red Mill
2 T coconut oil
1 C almond milk
1 C water
2 T honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
caramelized peaches
almond milk

Directions  Serves 4

1. Pour washed quinoa and oil into a sauce pan. Turn on to medium heat and stir and toast the quinoa until a light golden. 

2. Pour in the milk, water and honey and cinnamon. Stir until all combined. Bring mixture to a low boil. Turn down the heat and cook on low about 20-30 min. The mixture will be thick and the quinoa will be cooked. 

3. Take off the heat and serve. Top with some additional almond milk and caramelized peaches.

Caramelized Peaches


4 peaches sliced thin
3 T honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cardamon *optional
2 tsp fresh lemon juice


1. Heat a small skillet on medium heat.  Put all the ingredients into the skillet and heat until it thickens to your desired thickness. It will take a couple minutes. Pour on top of the cereal. 

They would also taste great eaten with just almond milk too.
