With its high nutrient content and versatility, quinoa is a great alternative to other hot or cold breakfast cereals. Try this quick and easy recipe to energize your body in the mornings. Serves 2-4.
|1 cup||quinoa seeds, preferably a pale colour (dry)|
|3 Tbs||almond butter or sliced raw almonds|
|1 cup||fresh berries of your choice|
|to taste||Milk or milk alternative|
- Rinse quinoa under running tap water, thoroughly straining out the liquid.
- Add quinoa, 2 cups of water, and a dash of salt to a small pot, and bring to a boil. Once it has been boiling for a few seconds, reduce the heat to low and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Allow it to cook for about 15 minutes, until the water is absorbed, then remove the lid and stir it. Mix in the honey, almond butter, and cinnamon.
- Serve quinoa with fresh berries and milk or milk alternative, as desired.
Note: When cooking the quinoa, you can replace part or all of the water with milk to make it creamier, and if you prefer a cold cereal in the morning, you can cook the quinoa the night before and refrigerate.
