Breakfast Quinoa Bowl with Coconut Milk and Cinnamon
Adding quinoa to your breakfast is a great way to shake things up and swap your everyday grains for a wheat-free alternative. It is so packed with amino acids that it makes for a great source of plant-based protein. Of course, the coconut milk will provide your dose of healthy fats and the cinnamon will add some anti-inflammatory compounds as well as essential antioxidants to this delicious breakfast.
|Rinse the quinoa and put it in a small pan with the coconut milk, cinnamon, vanilla in and a pinch of salt. Simmer on low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.|
|Remove the pan from the heat and let the quinoa sit for 5 more minutes or until the coconut milk is absorbed and the quinoa is cooked. Taste and add additional spices to your liking.|
|Scoop 3/4 cup of the cooked quinoa into a bowl and top it with crushed walnuts, almonds, half a banana and mixed berries.|
