If you like to eat oatmeal for breakfast, you might want to replace it with quinoa once in a while. Quinoa is a complete vegetarian protein that satisfies hunger and keeps us full for a while. One cup of cooked quinoa contains 8 grams of protein while the same amount of rice contains only 5 grams of protein, and oatmeal contains only 6 grams of protein. Having quinoa for breakfast is one of the easiest ways to start the day on the right foot.
For the quinoa:
½ cup rinsed and drained quinoa
½ cup water or plant milk
Dash of salt
Dash of cinnamon
For the topping:
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
2-3 tablespoons chopped almonds
Maple syrup or honey, optional
