Today I had some extra quinoa in the fridge but no real dinner or lunch materials left, so I thought to myself, “why not try to make a breakfast porridge?"
A review on quinoa. It’s kind of a witchy woo woo food. It’s packed with protein and satiates you for a lot longer than most grains, so it’s a great substitute for eggs or breakfast sandwiches. No cholesterol or grease, just the long-time energy benefits.
For my breakfast quinoa this morning, I warmed up the quinoa in the microwave for about a minute, splashed in some almond milk and sliced up half a banana. Then I went to the magic drawer and procured some cinnamon to sprinkle on top. Finally, I added in some frozen blueberries for some sweetness, texture and antioxidant super power!
The result: a delicious, interesting breakfast cereal made in about 2 minutes. That’s how you make leftover miracles, my glorious babes.
