Keen Wah

Here's something that makes me happy, so thought it was worth sharing. With Thanksgiving upon us, a little super-food for breakfast is certainly a good thing.

Quinoa Granola (a la Gwyneth)
1/2 cup real maple syrup
1/2 cup olive oil
3 cups quinoa (I like the tri-color from TJ's)
Sea salt

Mix together all ingredients in a big bowl. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the quinoa mixture out in a thin layer. Cook in a 400 degree over for about 10 minutes, stir. Cook for another 10 minutes, stir. Cook for about five more minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and stir one last time. Smooth it out and let cool completely. When cool, break into bite-sized pieces. Serve with your preferred toppings - I like blackberries and almond milk - or just eat it by itself. Recipe adapted from It's All Good.
