Most people wouldn’t think to have quinoa for breakfast, but this healthy grain (well, seed actually) is even more versatile than you think.
With it’s nutty texture and packed with protein, starting your day off with quinoa is a good thing and although you cook it the same way you would oats, it is something a little different.
Ingredients – Serves 2 (large portions):
- 170g/1 Cup dried Quinoa
- 480ml/2 Cup skimmed milk
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp honey
- Fruit and almond butter (optional)
1) Add the quinoa and milk to a non-stick pan and bring to the boil.
2) Simmer for 15 minutes, until most of the milk has absorbed.
3) Take off heat, stir in honey and cinnamon and serve with toppings of your choice. I went with almond butter and figs.
