Breakfast Quinoa

Submitted by: MOMSCHRIEF

Introduction

This is really filling and a good source of protein. It can be eaten hot or cold. This is really filling and a good source of protein. It can be eaten hot or cold.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    *Ancient Harvest Traditional Whole Grain Quinoa, 1 serving =.25 cup dry, 1 cup cooked according to pkg. This will make about 4 cups. Then chill & fluff.
    Coconut Oil, 2 tsp
    Raisins, .5 cup (not packed) You can substitute other dried fruit of your choice like dried cranberries
    Apples, fresh, 1 cup, quartered or chopped
    Pecans, .5 cup, chopped You can use walnuts or almonds if you like
    Cinnamon, ground, 1 tsp or to taste
    **Truvia (Zero Cal Stevia) 1 packet, 1 serving or any 0 calorie sweetener you like

Tips

If you make this it will be a lot unless several people are eating it right away. Left overs can be eaten cold & I think are just as good. Sometime I add a little fruit juice (cranberry is good) and stir to fluff it up when it is cold.

Directions

If you want this warm cook the quinoa while chopping and measuring the rest of the ingredients. Heat the coconut oil in the skillet. Add the cooked quinoa and other ingredients (except the sweetener) and stir over medium heat until hot and apples soften.
Stir in sweetener and serve.

Serving Size: This makes 4 hearty servings. I often get 6 servings of about a cup each so that is how I figured it.

Number of Servings: 6
