There are plenty of easy quinoa breakfast recipes that you can find online but I’ll only share 3 of my favorites. Quinoa is so versatile that you can practically add anything to it without overpowering the other ingredients.
One of my favorite breakfast recipes is the nutty cinnamon quinoa recipe. You will need a cup of low fat milk or skim milk, a cup of water, a cup of quinoa (well-rinsed), 2 cups fresh blueberries or strawberries, ½ teaspoon finely ground cinnamon, 1/3 cup chopped pecans (or any nut that you prefer) and 4 teaspoons organic nectar.
This is so easy to make, all you have to do is boil the milk, water and quinoa in a saucepan over high heat and then reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until most the liquid is absorbed. Turn off the heat and set it aside for 5 minutes while covered. Mix in cinnamon and blueberries and top with the chopped nuts. Drizzle with nectar and serve.
Another easy quinoa breakfast recipe that I like is the hot quinoa breakfast cereal. You will only need a cup of cooked quinoa, thinly sliced apples, seedless raisins, dash of cinnamon, milk and honey. Mix all the dry ingredients together and serve with milk. You can add honey or low-calorie sugar to taste.
The last easy quinoa breakfast recipe that I found is the peanut butter quinoa recipe. For the ingredients, you need a cup of quinoa, 2 to 3 tablespoons of butter, 2 cinnamon sticks, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 cup of milk, roasted pecans, raisins or dried cranberries and any fruits of your choice (bananas, strawberries, peaches).
Boil the quinoa with milk, sugar, cinnamon sticks and peanut butter. Reduce the heat to low until the milk is absorbed. Set it aside and cover it for 5 minutes. Add all the ingredients and serve. Now that’s easy right?
