  • Breakfast Quinoa (Vegetarian or vegan)

    1 cup quinoa, cooked (in water, not stock)
    1/2 water
    1 teaspoon unsalted butter/coconut oil
    1 tablespoon honey (optional)
    dash cinnamon
    1/3 cup golden raisins
    1/4 cup almonds/sunflower seeds/filberts/walnuts, etc
    1/2 cup whole milk, almond milk or soy milk (experiment to see what feels best in your tummy)

    Place prepared or leftover quinoa in a sauce pan. Add water, butter, cinnamon and raisins.

    Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until the cereal thickens slightly.

    Garnish with nuts. Pour milk over.

    Add some berries, grated apple, peaches, or other fruit according to taste. Makes one very hearty serving or two more modest ones.

    Experiment with adding sesame seeds, vanilla or orange essence, other spices, and feel good that you're eating a wonderful truly whole grain breakfast with lots of great protein in it.

    • that Quinoa recipe sounds great but is it high in cals?
      Dead animals don't equal fashion it equals cruelty


      • The quinoa itself is about 188 calories per 1.8 oz (50g), 3 grams of fat, 3 grams of fiber, and 7 grams of protein. So IMO, low cal, high protein, high fiber, and packed with lots of other nutrients.
