Hot Quinoa Breakfast Cereal
1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1/2 cup apples, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or almonds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Stevia or honey to sweeten if desired
In a medium-sized bowl, soak the quinoa in cold water for 5 minutes.
Drain and rinse under cold running water.
In a medium saucepan, combine the soaked quinoa and water and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes.
Add apples, nuts and cinnamon.
Simmer until water is absorbed.
Serve with milk (just a little over the cereal) and sweeten to taste with stevia or honey.
*For me, this would be 3 servings and I would count it as my carb option and add some more protein to this
breakfast meal…maybe more nuts or 1 egg.
