TOP RECIPE (Pesach): Quinoa Hot Cereal

This past Tuesday marked the start of the time we could observe the commandment NOT to eat Matzah before Passover (unless you follow the Vilna Gaon, in which case he (like my beloved Pandora) refused to eat it at any other time of year).

However, that doesn’t mean we can’t start planning for that flourless week. And who better to help than the great folks over at Couldn’t Be Pareve. Most of the focus on Passover recipes is what to make and serve during the seder itself. So I thought it would be useful to provide one of their recipes for “morning after” food: Cereal made from Quinoa. You can find the orignal posting here.

Quinoa Hot Cereal

Makes 2 servings

  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup water or almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • dried fruit and nuts for topping
  • honey for topping (optional)

Combine the first five ingredients (apple sauce through cinnamon) in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until the almond butter and sugar are melted and the mixture is hot. Add the quinoa and stir until hot. Divide between two bowls and top with dried fruits and nuts. Drizzle with honey if desired.
