The Perfect Breakfast – Quinoa with Fruit, Walnuts and Chia Seeds

Quinoa with Fruit, Walnuts and Chia Seeds

On a busy morning, it can be challenging to prepare a low-glycemic breakfast, unless, you have some left-over quinoa in your fridge. Just add your favorite non-dairy milk some fruit and nuts and the perfect breakfast is ready.

Cook quinoa the day before:

1. Rinse quinoa and let it soak for 30 minutes. This will help to get rid of any left-over saponin residue (a natural insect repellent) that leaves a bitter taste.
2. Cook in a pot on the stove or in a rice cooker. You will need one part of quinoa and 2 parts of water.
3. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 10 minutes or until quinoa is fluffy and has absorbed all of the liquid.
4. Keep cooked quinoa in the fridge for up to 2 days.
