Recipe Summary



For coconut quinoa:
For cherry compote:


Instructions Checklist
  • To make coconut quinoa, place quinoa and almond milk in a medium sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Cook until milk has dissolved. Add coconut milk 4 ounces at a time, stirring gently until liquid evaporates. Add salt. (Do not let milk absorb completely. Leave a little so that it is nice and creamy.) Once you have achieved desired consistency, remove from heat, cover, and set aside.

  • To make cherry compote, place cherries in a medium frying pan with water, salt, and cardamom. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes until cherries have released their juices and sauce starts to thicken. When sauce has a thick consistency, add maple syrup and stir. Cook for another 2 minutes and remove from heat.

  • Toast almonds in a small frying pan over low heat until they just start to brown. Remove from heat.

  • To assemble in a 16-ounce mason jar (or two 8-ounce jars), layer in this order: coconut quinoa, cherry compote, toasted almonds, shredded coconut. Continue until you reach the top of the jar. Enjoy warm, or store with a lid in an airtight container for several days in the refrigerator. Reheat if you like, or it is also great cold.
