This is one of my favorite easy meals for breakfast, it’s full of protein and has a twist with the maca that gives you a caffeine free boost in the morning. If you don’t like maca try another natural sugar like lucima or maple syrup adjust to taste.
🌱 1 cup of red quinoa
🌱 1 cup of non dairy milk
🌱 1 cup of water
🌱 1 teaspoon cinnamon
🌱 1 teaspoon of maca
🌱 1 teaspoon turmeric
🌱 3 dried figs (chopped)
🌱 2 tablespoons of pecans (chopped)
Combine the quinoa, milk, water, cinnamon, maca, turmeric, and dried fruit. In a large saucepan cook over medium heat.
Cook, stirring until the mixture comes to a simmer.
Cover, reduce the heat to low and cook the quinoa until the liquid has been absorbed, 10 to 15 minutes.
Stir in the remaining ingredients and let the quinoa cereal rest 5 minutes.
Serve warm and enjoy.
