I browned 3/4 cup uncooked quinoa for about 7 minutes over medium heat. Make sure to stir frequently so it does not burn! You just want to toast it a little.

I added about 1/4 tsp of pumpkin spice and a dash of nutmeg to the quinoa while I browned it. You could add cinnamon. (I didn't have any.) This is the part where your kitchen starts to smell amazing!

I didn't have any brown sugar, so I added a little maple syrup. (Real maple, not maple "flavored" syrup. With all due respect to Mrs. Buttersworth, you don't want to know what is in that stuff.)

After it comes to a boil, REDUCE HEAT TO LOW, cover, and cook for about 45 minutes or until it is porridge-y. Open the lid and stir a couple of times while cooking.

I tasted it while it was cooking and decided it needed a little something. So I threw in a little Vanilla Al'Mondo Super Protein. If you happen to have some in your fridge, I highly recommend it.
