Quinoa Breakfast

You can use what you have or make it according to this recipe using almond milk for added vanilla flavor. I sometimes add in nuts, Greek yogurt, a drizzle of honey, & even chia seeds for a little extra zip! This breakfast sticks to your ribs, is delicious, and gives you tons of energy to shine for the day!!

-From the Kitchen of Chris Freytag

Ingredients you will need:

  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa (or 1 cup cooked)
  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla almond milk unsweetened (plain almond milk works too)
  • 1/2 cup fresh berries
  • 1 sprinkle of cinnamon
  1. Rinse 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa thoroughly. Bring quinoa to a boil with 1 cup almond milk(reserving 1/2 cup for later). Add in a dash of cinnamon (apple pie spice is good too). Cover and let simmer 15 minutes until cooked.
  2. Wash and slice berries or other toppings as you let the quinoa cook.
  3. Fluff quinoa with a fork and add in additional almond milk until you get a desired oatmeal like consistency.
  4. Top breakfast quinoa with berries and other toppings of your choosing. ENJOY!
