Quinoa Cereal with Strawberry Jam

With the creamy, rich taste of hemp milk and the bright color of strawberry jam, this easy-to-prepare breakfast has a sophisticated taste and an upscale look. Ground flax seeds make it even more satisfying.

2 cups hemp milk or milk of choice, more for serving
1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, more for serving
2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
2 tablespoons fruit-sweetened strawberry jam, more for serving
1 cup red grapes

1. In a small saucepan, bring milk to a boil. Add quinoa and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover. Cook 10 to 12 minutes or until most of the milk has been absorbed.

2. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, flax seeds and strawberry jam. Cover and cook for another 5 to 6 minutes or until milk has been absorbed.

3. Remove from heat. Add in grapes, mixing well to combine.

4. Transfer cereal to bowls. Serve warm with additional milk, strawberry jam and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
