Looking to switch up your morning oatmeal routine? Quinoa is the perfect thing. Like oatmeal, it’s a whole grain packed with fiber, protein, and lots of good for you minerals and nutrients. Also like oatmeal, you can make it a million and one ways depending on what you are in the mood for.
So let’s start with the basic recipe – 1/4 cup quinoa to 1/2 cup liquid. You bring it to a boil and then let it simmer ahead of time. With that, you can add in all sorts of things to the mix – fruit, honey, nuts, dried fruit, chia seeds, spices, etc. It can also be made ahead of time and warmed up when you need it. Cook the quinoa ahead of time and then add a touch of milk and microwave it for 1-2 minutes. Top with anything you love and you are ready to eat.
