Here's what I did
I defrosted the Quinoa
Put the 2 cups cooked quinoa isn a saucepan first
added the spices till it became fragrant Stirring so it wouldn't burn
added the Milk vanilla and about 1/4 ish cup splenda
Stirred till it was thick and creamy (2 min)
Topped it with about 1/2 cup of milk per serving
