Sweet and Warm Quinoa Cereal

Quinoa (Keen-Wah) One of my favorites as a vegetarian for a complete protein source. Requires little prep work and is very easy to cook, can be made into a sweet or savoury dish and is the perfect way to start ones day. Full of fibre, protein, minerals and is easy to digest, unlike a lot of gluten-laced breakfast options readily available. To reduce time spent in the kitchen, Quinoa can be made in advanced and stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. I make a big batch on Sunday and a big batch on Wednesday.


1 cup of quinoa (prepared as per package)
Handful of Raisins
Handful of Walnuts

Top with warm milk, I use coconut.


Scoop quinoa into large bowl, add in walnuts and raisins and cinnamon. Mix well. Separate into two bowls and drizzle with honey. Top with warm milk of choice and serve immediately.


“whenever we cook for others, we are making a statement to them. If what we prepare and present to our family and friends is attractive, tasty, and health-supporting, we are saying that we want them to be well and happy, to feel nurtured and strengthened. When we offer cuisine that is made of whole and natural ingredients, we are saying that we want them to have all the energy they need in order to make every aspect of their lives richer. We are saying that we honor them” — John Robbins, In May All Be Fed
