Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1/2 cup cooked quinoa
    1 banana, plus more for garnish
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 Tablespoon maple syrup(optional) plus more for drizzling
    2 Tablespoons crushed pecans or walnuts

Tips

If you don’t have leftover quinoa for this but still want to make it, cooking a batch only takes 15 minutes. For each 1/2 cup cooked quinoa you’ll need 1/4 cup uncooked quinoa and 1/2 cup water brought to a boil and covered until all the water’s been absorbed.


Directions

Using a fork, mash half the banana in a bowl into a smooth puree.
Add in the quinoa, cinnamon, and salt and mix together. If the quinoa’s not sweet enough, add the maple syrup to enhance the flavor.
Move into a serving bowl and top with remaining banana . Add additional nuts and maple syrup if desired. Serve as a cold breakfast or—if you prefer—heat it up in the microwave or oven like a hot cereal.


Serving Size: 2 servings
