A twist on your winter classic! Known for it's high protein content and low GI, quinoa makes for a sustainable (and delicious!) breakfast meal. Serve with stone fruit, yoghurt, and/or nuts and seeds for a balanced meal.
1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp cinnamon
Soak quinoa overnight in water. This will activate enzymes making the quinoa easier to digest.
The next morning, drain water from the quinoa using a sieve.
Add drained quinoa to a pot with unsweetened almond milk and cinnamon. Stir.
Place pot over a medium heat and bring to the boil. Reduce heat immediately to a simmer.
Cook, stirring occasionally, for approx. 15 mins or until most of the liquid is absorbed and the quinoa is soft.
Serve with fruit, greek yoghurt, nuts, and/or seeds.
