Ingredients
  • 1½ cups organic quinoa
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1½ cup organic sprouts
Instructions
  1. Rinse the quinoa in a strainer under cold water for 1 minute. Shake the strainer over the sink to remove excess water.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add quinoa and cook for 10 minutes, stirring often.
  3. Add Almond Breeze Almond Milk and bring quinoa to a boil. Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed and quinoa is 'toasted' golden brown and starts to dry out and release a 'nutty' scent. Remove from heat; set aside to cool for 15 minutes.
  4. Fluff with a fork; add sea salt and pepper. Gently toss with fresh sprouts and serve.
