Quinoa breakfast bowl

2 June 2011

Let’s just call it an obsession.

I really like quinoa.  I like the way it sticks in your gums after you’ve cleaned out the bowl.  I like that it contains 5g of protein per serving.  I like its chewy texture.  (And I love that it’s gluten free.)

I really like how I ate it for breakfast this morning.

Make this breakfast when you’re craving something fast, simple, and nutritious for breakfast.

Quinoa breakfast bowl for one

  • 1/4 c. dry quinoa, rinsed
  • 1/3 c. water
  • 1/4 c. orange juice, scant
  • handful chopped walnuts and dried apricots, optional.
  • sprinkle of cinnamon, optional.
  1. Boil quinoa with water and orange juice.  Reduce to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes, until liquid is soaked up by the grain.
  2. Put in cereal bowl and sprinkle ground cinnamon, walnuts and apricots on top.
