Ripped straight from the pages of Food & Wine, but Mr Weiss-a-fied, my new favorite breakfast bowl to kick off the day.
Breakfast Quinoa (adapted from Food & Wine)
1 cup quinoa, rinsed (serves 4 and can be easily halved or keep for the following morning)
2 cups water
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup slivered almonds, 1/2 c dried apricots, raisins, cranberries or any dried fruit
3 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon, zest of one small lime (they used orange but I prefer the lime)
yogurt for serving (they also used ricotta, but it’s not something I normally have on hand, yogurt is just as good taste wise)
In a small pot cover the quinoa with water, bring a boil cover cook over low heat until all the water has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender. About 15 mins, fluff with fork.
In a skillet heat oil, add almonds and cook until golden brown, add dried fruit, maple syrup, zest and cinnamon, stir until heated through. Add the quinoa stir to incorporate. Serve with a dollop of yogurt.
get to it, your body will love you for it.
