A lovely alternative to oatmeal.  Quinoa is a gluten-free grain with a great nutritional profile!

Ingredients: 
  • 1 cup dried quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal
  • ½ cup Compote
  • ½ cup plant milk
  • 1/2 handful of walnuts (optional)

 

 Compote - Choose from:

  • Pitted dates
  • Cherries
  • Prunes
  • Apricots
  • Raisins
  • Mango
  • Papaya
  • Figs
  •  

 

 

Instructions: 

Cook quinoa in water according to directions or just like rice for about 15 minutes until soft and popped.  Sprinkle with flaxseed meal.  Top with some fruit compote and splash some plant milk and top with nuts if desired.

 

Compote:

  Place 1 cup dried fruit of choice in medium saucepan with just enough water to cover bottom, to around 1/4 inch.  Bring to boil, cover and lower to simmer until fruit is soft, approximately ½ hour.  Make sure that water doesn’t completely evaporate and add a splash if needed.  Mash with a fork or potato masher if a smooth version is preferred over chunky.  Keep in fridge for a week.
