Warming Quinoa Muesli

 
Quinoa has become one of the most popular nutritional superstars of the decade. And with good reason! This small seed has an amazing nutty taste, is incredibly versatile, easy to prepare, high in nutrients and a complete vegetarian protein. 
 
As people become aware of quinoa, they are surprised to learn it is not a true grain, but a seed. Like other seeds, it is high in protein and fibre for balanced energy and satiety. One cup of quinoa has about as much protein as two deli slices of chicken breast or about 15% protein by weight.
 

Ingredients:
1/2 cup        rolled quinoa flakes
1 cup           boiling water
2 tbs             hemp hearts
1 tsp             coconut butter or oil
2 tsp             raw honey 
1/4 tsp          cinnamon
1/8 tsp          nutmeg
1/8 tsp          cardamom
1/4 tsp          ginger
pinch           unrefined salt
 
Topping options: pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes
 
Directions: 
1. Boil water.
2. Place all ingredients into a bowl or wide mouth stainless steel thermos if you want to travel with your breakfast. 
3. Pour boiling water over the ingredients and stir.
4. Let sit for 2 minutes and add extra toppings if desired.

Julie...rolled quinoa? Not familiar with this. Can you help explain it to me?

Hi Wood Island Girl,

Rolled quinoa is also known quinoa flakes. You can now purchase this product in most regular grocery stores, health food stores or online here: http://ow.ly/ZZYNC
