Oatmeal boosted with Quinoa

IMG_8592

Are you getting tired of your regular morning oatmeal? Try this comforting version of it. The Quinoa adds a crunchy texture, and the vanilla, cinnamon and cardamom makes it soothing and delicious. It takes a little bit of time to cook (15-20 min), but make a double batch and save the other serving to the next morning. Just reheat it with a little bit of your choice of milk.

Oatmeal boosted with Quinoa

1/4 cup Oats¹

1/4 cup Quinoa²

1 cup Almond Milk³

1 teaspoon Vanilla powder

1 pinch Cinnamon

1 pinch Cardamom

Optional: Add dried fruits/berries (tips: try goji berries). Makes it even more delicious!

Cook on low-to-medium heat. Occasionally stir.
Serve with your favorite oatmeal topping (cacao nibs, nuts, fruit, berries, jam, etc).

Notes:

¹ I usually use steel-cut oats, but you can use the kind you prefer (rolled, old-fashion etc) – just try to avoid using Instant Oats (especially with this recipe since the Quinoa takes so much longer than Instant Oats to cook). The Instant Oats are pre-cooked and dehydrated which make them quick to cook but less nutritious. They are for sure handy when you’re in a rush, or don’t have a stove to cook on (we usually takes them on our camping trips), but watch out for a lot of additives of both preservatives, sugar and salt.

² You can of course use the kind of Quinoa you like the best, just remember to rinse the seeds in water first to remove the toxic bitter coating (called saponin).

³ Any kind of milk would work.
