The best thing about quinoa is its versatility. It can be a side dish, a main, breakfast or a snack.
Banana pecan quinoa "Oatmeal" is a simple recipe that could be whipped up quickly in the morning or made the night before. It is super #cleaneats and simple. It also tastes deceptively like a healthy version of a desert pudding.
1 ripe banana
1 cup of cooked Toasted Quinoa, cooled
1/4 cup of almond milk
handful of pecans
maple syrup or honey (to taste, totally optional)
Blend banana and almond milk in a food processor. The banana acts as a natural emulsifier that thickens the almond milk. Its also high in potassium and other minerals. Pour blended banana almond milk into bowl of cooled cooked quinoa, mix thoroughly, top with pecans. Add a drizzle of maple syrup or honey for added sweetness (or not, bananas are naturally pretty sweet). Dish works well as a hot "Cereal" or cold. Breakfast of champions!
