Coconut Quinoa is super easy to make! You only need 4 ingredients to create a fluffy and slightly sweet batch of quinoa. The ratio to cook quinoa is generally 1:2 (1 cup of quinoa to 2 cups of coconut milk).
STEP 1: CHOOSE INGREDIENTS
You need quinoa, coconut milk, water, and maple syrup for this recipe!
Coconut Milk: We like to use full-fat coconut milk for our coconut quinoa. It offers the best flavor and the best creamy texture!
Quinoa: You can use any color of quinoa that you would like! We generally have white quinoa in our kitchen, but any color will do.
Sweetener: Maple syrup is one of our favorite natural sweeteners! We love the flavor the maple gives the coconut quinoa. However, feel free to use honey or agave as a sweetener substitute!
STEP 2: LET IT COOK
To prepare the quinoa, place coconut milk, water, maple syrup, and quinoa in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil over high heat.
Next, turn the heat to low, cover the saucepan and let the quinoa cook for about 20 minutes or until the quinoa is cooked!
STEP 3: SERVE
Remove the quinoa from the heat and serve immediately or let the quinoa cool completely before storing it in a meal prep container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. It’s perfect for meal prep throughout the week!
