I absolutely love how versatile quinoa is. But how exactly do you pronounce quinoa? It’s pronounced KEEN-WAH. A super nutrient-dense seed (not a grain), packed with 5 grams of fibre and 8 grams of protein per cup, not to mention iron, magnesium, zinc, potassium, Omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins B1, B2, B6
Quinoa has a bit of a nutty flavor, which makes it a perfect alternative to breakfast! I made this recipe by doing the following:
1 cup Raw Quinoa
2 cups water
1 dash cinnamon
1 cup milk of your choice (I used coconut milk)
Fruit of your choice (I used sliced bananas)
A drizzle of almond butter and chia seeds (for added nutrition)
In a small sauce pan, place water. Bring to a boil and add quinoa and cinnamon. Cover and simmer until all water is evaporated (about 15 minutes). Serve on a bowl (I found 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa to be filling. Add coconut milk, sliced bananas, a drizzle of almond butter and chia seeds.
Serve and enjoy!
