My favorite way to eat quinoa is actually for breakfast. If you make a pot for dinner, be sure to make extra for the morning. The following general recipe combines leftover quinoa with a couple of key ingredients to make a quick and easy breakfast that I currently believe is able to beat out almost any oatmeal concoction!
Quinoa Breakfast Cereal
Place a serving of quinoa (however much you’re hungry for) into a bowl. Stir in enough soymilk to moisten as well as a handful of raisins. Heat in microwave for two minutes, or until thoroughly heated. Top with cold soy milk, brown sugar, and salt, to taste.
*If you don’t have any leftover quinoa but would still like to enjoy some for breakfast, quinoa really doesn’t take too much time to make and can be easily cooked from scratch in the morning if desired. Instead of following the cooking method mentioned yesterday, try combining one cup of quinoa with 1 1/2 cups of soymilk and a handful of raisins. Bring to a boil, and then simmer for 15-20 minutes for an extra creamy porridge. Like above, top with brown sugar and salt. Feel free to also experiment with adding dried cranberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and/or chopped nuts.
Note to fellow food bloggers: You’ll have to let me know what you think, since I know so many of you are such avid oatmeal fans!
