    What You’ll Need for Quinoa Polenta:

    A Large Pot with a Cover
    Measuring Cups & Spoons
    A Nutri-Bullet or Food Processor
    A Whisk
    A Cheese Grater

     

    Ingredients:

    1 1/2 Cup Quinoa, Roughly Ground
    5 Cups Veggie or Chicken Broth
    1 Tsp Sea Salt
    1 Tsp White Pepper
    Pinch Saffron
    3 Tbsp Romano (Optional)

     

    How To Put It Together:

    1. Grind the quinoa in a nutri-bullet or food processor until it’s the consistency of corn meal.
     
    2. To a large pot, add the broth, quinoa
    , sea salt, white pepper and saffron; whisk the ingredients together. Bring the pot to a boil then reduce to a simmer; allow to thicken while whisking for about 5 minutes. When the quinoa has a porridge-like consistency, whisk in the romano.
     
    3. Serve and enjoy.

     

    Nina’s Tasty Tips:

    The basics of this recipe can be served as a breakfast dish. Eliminate the white pepper, saffron and romano. Add 1/4 cup of honey and 2 teaspoons of honey and a handful of walnuts, if you like.
