QUINOA BREAKFAST BOWL

Updated: May 27

I urge you to try out this recipe as it is so delicious and a really healthy breakfast. Some may think that this sounds a slightly odd breakfast idea but, with its fluffy, nutty texture combined with some fresh fruit, it makes for a really tasty breakfast alternative.


Serves 1


Ingredients:

50g flaked quinoa

325ml almond milk (or milk of your choice)

Seeds of 1/4 vanilla pod or vanilla essence (optional)

10g dried cranberries (or fresh berries of your choice)

25g dried apricots, roughly chopped

15g pistachio nuts, roughly chopped

1-2 tbsp natural yoghurt (optional)


Method:

  • Rinse and drain the quinoa. Place the quinoa in a pan with 300ml of milk and simmer gently for 15 minutes.

  • Turn off the heat, transfer the quinoa into a bowl and mix in the remaining 25 ml milk and vanilla (if using) until well combined.

  • Set aside until needed or keep in the fridge overnight if preparing for the next day.

  • Mix in the nuts and fruit and spoon the quinoa into a bowl (or mason jar if you are taking it to the office).

* Keep in the fridge and use within 3 days

* Please note - swap the driedcranberries for other dried fruit if you are on blood thinning medication
