Quinoa for Breakfast
So if you find yourself with left over quinoa, you might want to give this a try.
This is not an exact recipe, but a little healthy and yummy meal inspiration. Here's what I've been doing:
In a microwave safe bowl, combine 1/2 cup cooked quinoa, 1/4 to 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice), a pinch of cinnamon, a little brown sugar (or maple syrup or honey), 1 to 2 tablespoons of raisins, and 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts. Heat in the microwave, uncovered, for 1 1/2 minutes on High power.
Top with chopped fresh fruit as desired. Stir and let sit for about 1 minute. Enjoy!
Some mornings I've had chopped Honey Crisp apple (1/2 an apple) stirred into my quinoa bowl and some mornings I've had sliced banana stirred into my quinoa bowl. I really like both!
The photo above is one I captured from the internet... because sometime I forget to take photos if my breakfast at 5:00 am. Imagine that!?!
I am looking forward to trying more quinoa breakfast recipes. I found a great collection of recipes here:
This one recipe (below) will be the NEXT one I try for sure!
