Cooked quinoa with almond milk and some cinnamon, topped with blueberries.
Comments on Final Outcome:
This is a great breakfast, in replacement of oatmeal. However, it’s a pain to prep! It’s not a dish where you can make in, like, 10 min. I had to soak the quinoa for ~4 hours to get the saponin off, then rinse it several times to make sure it’s washed well. Otherwise, I’d make it more often.
My reason for keeping this ingredient around in my life:
Quinoa is high in protein and it’s actually complete protein (has all 9 essential amino acids), so it’s good for vegetarians. Also, it’s gluten-free.
