Lemon Poppyseed Quinoa Cereal

1 cup coconut milk
1 cup water
1 cup quinoa
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp poppy seeds
grated zest of 1 lemon
1 1/2 T honey, or to taste
1/3 c sliced almonds

In medium saucepan, bring the coconut milk and water to a boil. Add quinoa and salt, reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, for 15 min. Add extra liquid if necessary.

Stir in poppy seeds, lemon zest, and honey. Serve hot, topped with nuts and additional milk.

Adapted from Super Natural Every Day, where it is made with bulgur wheat. 

Edited to say that I think in future I would use more coconut milk or less quinoa, since it turned out pretty dry and not very cereal-like.
