Quinoa Breaky.

Quinoa Breaky.(serves 1)

130gm cooked Quinoa
1/2 cup skinny milk
Vanilla extract
3-4 dried prunes
1 pce dried pear
1 Banana mashed

1. Place Quinoa, milk, Cinnamon, vanilla and dried fruit in a small saucepan and bring to the boil stirring occasionally then turn down heat and simmer stirring until the milk is absorbed and the quinoa is to your prefered consistancy.

2. Stir though mashed banana and bung the lot into a bowl.

3. Enjoy.

*Honey can be added if you need extra sweetness but I find the fruit makes it sweet enough. Experiment with different fruits and add nuts and seeds.

* to cook Quinoa my preferred method is to wash 1 cup quinoa well, rubbing it between my fingers to make sure it's really well scrubbed. I change the water a few times then leave it to soak for about 30mins. Then I bung it in the rice cooker with 2 cups of water and let the rice cooker do the rest for me. I store it in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week.
