Breakfast Quinoa

Recently I promised my husband I would workout 5 days a week for a Le Creuset set. #noregrets It was the best agreement I ever shook on. I’m in love with my precious.

Well, all this working out has me tuckered out and I’m not recovering very well from each work out. I need me some protein. As a vegetarian, I typically get my protein from tofu, protein bars or quinoa. I’ve been seeing these yummy looking recipes for breakfast quinoa all over Pinterest and decided to give it a shot. It’s like an upgraded bowl of boring old oatmeal. Feel free to decrease or increase the amount of honey and brown sugar you use so it suits your taste, I personally like everything sweet….which is why working out is a struggle for me.

Cook time: 25 minutes                                                                      Makes: 2 servings

¼ cup uncooked quinoa
¼ rolled oats
1 cup milk (you can use nut milks or coconut milk instead)
½ cup water
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg (optional)
½ tbsp. honey
½ tbsp. brown sugar
Berries for topping
2 tbsp. of chopped nuts (I used walnuts)

1. Bring milk and water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the quinoa and oats and stir. Reduce heat to low and cover. Let this simmer for about 15 minutes.

2. Stir in the cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, and brown sugar. Cover and simmer for another 8 to 10 minutes, until the quinoa is fully cooked. Serve topped with the berries and nuts of your choice and enjoy!
