In a saucepan, bring quinoa, 3/4 cup almond milk, water, vanilla, salt, and cardamom to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until liquid is absorbed, 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and let rest five minutes, then fluff with a fork.
For each serving, top 1/2 cup quinoa with 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 sliced pear, and 2 Tbsp almonds.
Refrigerate cooked quinoa in an airtight container up to 3 days.
