Sweet Friday Quinoa

on December 2, 2011

Holy delicious quinoa Batman! We looooove quinoa but never thought to pair it with our favorite meal of the day! This amazing oatmeal is the perfect way to start our last day of the week, pack in that protein baby! Try it with any berry you like, mix it up and add some honey OR maple syrup, heck, maybe a little bit of both! How adventurous are you feeling today?

Ingredients

¾ cup cooked quinoa
½ cup unsweetened vanilla soy milk
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp Goji berries
2 tsp raw walnuts
¼ banana, sliced up
Sprinkle of cinnamon and/or nutmeg

Directions

Combine quinoa, milk, honey and Goji berries in a small saucepan and place over a medium low heat.  Once the mixture comes to a boil, turn it down to a simmer and allow it to cook for about five minutes or so or until the porridge has thickened a bit and is heated through.

Stir in walnuts and bananas and top with cinnamon and nutmeg… Enjoy!

Serves 1.
