If you want to start your day off right, packed with flavor and feel-good food, consider this recipe…
- 1/2 cup quinoa, cooked (Bring 1/2 cup quinoa and 1 cup water to a boil. Cover, and lower heat to a simmer until the water has evaporated – approx. 12-15 mins.)
- Add 1/4 - 1/2 cups of your favorite nuts to the mix (we like sliced almonds and/or chopped pecans)
- Add 1/2 cup of your preferred dried fruit (we like dried apricots and dried raspberries or dried blueberries and dried pears)
- Add honey and/or cinnamon to taste
- Dress with a generous pour of your preferred milk!
If you want to add an extra dose of indulgence to this dish, consider a swirl of caramel or chocolate. How well either would work would depend primarily on your choice of fruit as caramel and chocolate play well with most milks and nuts.
