I was thinking this morning what to name this post and after a few minutes I’ve realised that this delicious new found breakfast option needs nothing else than to be called what it is…Quinoa, the best chocolate bowl you will ever taste.
I’ve used quinoa before but never in a sweet option, especially a breakfast one. Most times I cook it as a side to chicken or together with rice in the oven.
One thing I can confirm is that the portion I’ve made, the one you see in the picture above was too much for me, but it might be perfect for you.
Ingredients/how to make this deliciousness
1 cup quinoa, 1 cup almond milk, 1 cup hazelnut milk, pinch of salt, 3 tsp maple syrup, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1tbs Nutella or any other chocolate spread. Fresh fruit to decorate and chia seeds, alongside a few chunks of dark chocolate. The ingredients are for two portions but you can easily get three or even four.
Rinse the quinoa with cold water, then place them into a hot pan and mix with a wooden spoon for about 3 minutes, until the seeds dry a bit and become crispy. Add the 2 cups of milk and bring to boil, then let it simmer for about 25 minutes, mixing every now and then.
Once the liquid has been completely absorbed and the quinoa is tender, remove from the heat and add the maple syrup, cinnamon and chocolate spread and combine all together,
Serve warm or a bit cooled down, decorate with fruit and any seed you might be already using for your smoothie bowl. I love chia and flax seeds, but hemp seed is a good one as well.
Hope you enjoy it:)
