Let me let you in on a little secret this fine morning...
I love breakfast.
Not just puppy love... the real deal!
I catch myself lying awake at night picturing what I'm going to prepare myself for breakfast the next day!
I may be delving slightly into obsessive territory.
This was yesterday's morning delight...
Vanilla Quinoa Porridge with Apricots and Pistachios
(perfect serve for one)
about 1/4 cup quinoa
(I used the leftover quinoa from dinner the night before)
1/4 cup soy milk
a dollop of honey
about 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
a dash of vanilla essence
(or get lazy like me and use pie apricots)
Bring to boil 3/4 cup water with the quinoa (the rule is 1 part quinoa to 3 parts water)
Simmer for about 10-15mins covered
Add in the soy milk, honey, cinnamon and vanilla
Stir until it's a lovely porridgey consistancy
Top with apricots, pitachios and finish with a glossy drizzle of honey
I made mine the night before, refridgerated overnight and heated her up in the morning with a little water. Add your toppings right before you serve though.
Such a lovely healthy way to start the day (323 Cal says MyFitnessPal)
You really must try - I know you will love it!
And don't forget to let me know how you go!
Happy breakfasting! Jx
