  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

Melt the coconut oil over medium heat.  Add the quinoa and cook, stirring frequently, until it is toasted and golden brown, about five minutes.  Next, add the coconut milk and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until the liquid is absorbed, about 12-20 minutes.  Fluff the quinoa with a fork, then stir in the maple syrup to taste.  Top each bowl with the shredded coconut and blueberries.  Enjoy!
