Ingredients

  • 3 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. lemon juice, divided
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 large coins fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 tsp. grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup strongly brewed Earl Grey tea
  • 1 cup halved fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 4 Tbs. sliced almonds

Preparation

1. Add 3 Tbs. lemon juice and enough water to make 12/3 cups liquid in 2-cup measuring cup; pour into medium saucepan, and bring to a boil. Stir in quinoa, salt, and ginger, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer 20 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat, and stir in milk and lemon zest. Cover, and let stand 5 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, bring maple syrup and tea to a boil in small saucepan over medium-high heat. Boil 6 minutes, or until liquid thickens and bubbles turn frothy. Pour over strawberries in bowl, and stir gently to coat. Stir in remaining 1 tsp. lemon juice.

3. Spoon 3/4 cup quinoa into each serving bowl, top each with 1/4 cup berry compote, and sprinkle each with 1 Tbs. almonds.
