Calories 430kcal


  • 1 cup quinoa grain
  • 2 cups water bottled
  • ½ tsp cinnamon ground
  • ¼ tsp cloves ground
  • 1 cup fig dried
  • 1 cup walnut english, dried
  • 1 cup almond milk original
  • 1 tsp honey


  • Rinse quinoa under cool water to remove coating.
  • In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, add the quinoa, water, cinnamon, and cloves and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat, and cover, allowing quinoa to simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until the water is absorbed, and the grain is tender.
  • Remove the spices.
  • Fluff the quinoa with a fork.
  • Stir in the dried figs, nuts, milk, and honey to taste.
  • Let sit for 5 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to meld, and the fruit to soften.


You may use red quinoa but the cooking time may be about 5 minutes longer. This recipe makes great leftovers: just gently reheat the next day to enjoy.
