Breakfast Quinoa

Quinoa.  Not my favorite grain, but I’ve included it in my diet for several years now as I know it’s super healthy.  It’s packed with protein (a complete protein containing all 9 essential amino acids), fiber (twice as much as most other grains), vitamins and minerals, and it’s gluten-free. I knew it could be eaten as a hot breakfast cereal, and on this cold, drizzly morning I decided to give it a try.  Generally, I have my smoothie which has mixed frozen berries, banana, kale, spinach, flax seeds, etc., but just wasn’t feelin’ it today.  I’m so glad I mixed up my routine.  This hot cereal is so good! Experiment with different fruits and maybe add a sprinkling of chopped walnuts or ground flax seeds.

Instructions
  1. In medium sauce pan combine rinsed quinoa, water, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover, and cook 15 minutes. Fluff with fork.
  2. Scoop into bowl and top with applesauce (great way to avoid sweeteners), apples, raisins, more cinnamon and nutmeg, and warm non-dairy milk (I prefer the taste of unsweetened vanilla soy for this dish). YUM!
