Warm and Nutty Cinnamon Quinoa

We are starting a 21 day Daniel Fast tonight at sundown, so I will be posting some recipes that are good for those who are fasting.
1 cup almond milk or coconut milk
1 cup water
1 cup organic quinoa, (note: rinse quinoa)
2 cups fresh blackberries, organic preferred
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped pecans, toasted*
Combine milk, water and quinoa in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 15 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Turn off heat; let stand covered 5 minutes. Stir in blackberries and cinnamon; transfer to four bowls and top with pecans.
Serves 4.
*While the quinoa cooks, roast the pecans in a 350F degree toaster oven for 5 to 6
