It took me awhile to warm up to the idea of quinoa for breakfast, it always seemed more like a savory lunch/dinner grain to me. But add a few toppings and Bwhamo!! – quinoa is breakfast!! Tailor this to your own tastes (I recommend at least one crunchy thing like toasted almonds or coconut and one sweet thing like raisins, apples, honey, or maple syrup) and enjoy knowing that you’re starting your day with almost a full deck of protein building amino acids.
2 large servings
1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
Toasted almonds (whole or slivered)
Spices: Cinnamon, apple pie spice, cardamom, ground ginger, etc
Rinse quinoa thoroughly in water. Bring to a boil in a covered pot, then turn heat down to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
Add your favorite toppings and enjoy hot and toasty.
