I adore quinoa – it’s a quick-cooking, high-protein grain (11 grams of protein per cup!). It is so nutritionally complete, NASA has considered growing it on extended space missions. Instead of your usual bowl of cereal or oatmeal, try something different. If you have quinoa in your pantry or some extra in the fridge, try this comforting Quinoa Swirled With Almond Milk.
This is the second of my top picks for plant-based breakfasts that provide protein and staying power. See my first pick, Curried Scramble Tofu With Apricot Toast. And check back next week for more!
Plant-Based Breakfast #2
Quick and Comforting: Quinoa Swirled With Almond Milk
1 cup prepared quinoa (according to package directions; for added calories and nutrients prepare with milk instead of water)
1/2 cup almond milk (or other milk if you prefer)
1/2 cup fresh berries or chopped banana
Stir all ingredients together. You can heat up the quinoa and almond milk first to enjoy it warm, then top with fruit. Or simply eat it like a bowl of cereal.
