If you believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day then you should give this dish a try.
This crop has become highly appreciated for its nutritional value, as its protein content is very high (18%). Unlike wheat or rice (which are low in lysine), and like oats, quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it a complete protein source. It is a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron. Quinoa is gluten-free and considered easy to digest.
Ingredients (all except quinoa are optional)
- 1 cup cooked quinoa
- diced fresh or dried fruit
- agave or other sweetener
- almond or other plant milk
- Heat cooked quinoa in a small pan with a little plant milk or heat in microwave.
- Add fresh or dried fruit and any other toppings you like.
