Ingredients (for one serving):

  • 1 serving quinoa, dry
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 serving sweetened nuts (I used honey sesame cashews)
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar for reducing

Directions:

  • Boil quinoa according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, wash and slice strawberries. Set aside.
  • In another small pot, bring balsamic vinegar to boil and reduce it (takes about 5 minutes, it will become thick and oily).
  • Once quinoa is finished, drain any excess liquid and mix in nuts, maple syrup, and strawberries.  Plate.
  • Pour balsamic reduction over the top.
  • Enjoy!
