During the week I do not eat breakfast. Yes, yes I know this is not a very healthy habit, but I do my best to make up for it in the weekend. Usually I will have healthy pancakes or vegetable-loaded frittatas, but last weekend I felt like trying something new.
I had some left-over quinoa in the fridge. I thought would try adding some of the ingredients I used for the Overnight Fridge Oatmeal that I enjoyed so much.
The result was amazing! I had Quinoa for breakfast three days running with slight variations. This also means that the below is not really a recipe, more like a menu that you can use to assemble your perfect bowl of Quinoa.
Ingredients & Recipe
The recipe is simple: just pick the ingredients you would like and combine them.
1 cup of cooked quinoa (use left-over Quinoa that was cooked in water or cook the Quinoa in almond milk…adding spices)
(or use a mix of quinoa and millet for example)
a splash – ¼ cup of almond milk (cold or warm – I prefer cold)
3 tbsp creamy yoghurt of quark (omit if the milk is warm)
1 tsp chia seeds (allow the chia some time to plump up)
½ tsp flax seed
(try adding dried cherries or raisins)
(or add some nuts)
Vanilla Essence (cinnamon, ginger, lemon zest)
½ tsp stevia (or maple syrup or honey)
fresh or defrosted blueberries (or raspberries)
(blueberries go well with sliced banana)
a few crumbled walnuts (almonds, toasted chia seeds)
