If you’re new here, my name is Yassine, and today’s recipe blog is all about one of my favorite ingredients. So today I’m gonna show you how to make three easy quinoa recipes. These can be used for a bunch of different things, whether it’s bulking up like at dinner,
making it into a meal prep thing, using it for side dishes. They are fabulous. There’s also a breakfast recipe in there, so there are tons of ways for you to use it and I hope that this blog also shows you how versatile of ingredient quinoa actually is.
I mean if you followed me for a while and you’ve checked out any of my recipes on this site, then you probably already know that you can use quinoa million different ways. But these easy quinoa recipes are just like I said, easy. They’re also vegan and they’re also gluten-free. As always, so they’re already up on the blog and everything you need to make them is in those posts. And otherwise, let’s go ahead and dive in.
chai breakfast quinoa.
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 chai tea bags
- 2 cups cooked quinoa
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons almond butter
- 2 tablespoons blueberry jam
- 2 tablespoons seed mix
We’re gonna start by adding in our almond milk into a pan, and then we’re actually just gonna add two chai teabags directly into that pan. Bring it to a little simmer, and then let the heat reduce. So take it off the heat and let this steep like you would tea,
for about five minutes or so. And set those aside or just discard them. And then we’re going to add in our cooked quinoa. And you guys probably already know how to cook quinoa, if you don’t know how to do that already.
As well as some maple syrup, cinnamon, and chia seeds. And we’re just gonna stir this all together, and because the almond milk is already hot, it should be warm.
But if it has cooled down more than you like,
you can just put this back on the stove
and heat it up quickly until the quinoa is nice and hot. When you’re ready to serve it up,
just divide it into your two bowls. And then toppings are totally up to you.
You can do whatever you like.
My personal favorite is some almond butter, some jam of some sort. This is a blueberry chia jam. And then I always sprinkle it with some sort of crunch. So whether it’s coconut, or in this case, it’s some seeds. And then I like to add in some almond milk to finish it off.
So this is a really quick and easy breakfast. It’s ready in about five minutes, maybe a little bit longer. It’s great for meal prep. It’s super-delicious and it’s really high in protein,
high in fiber, and it will keep you nice and full
