When I was told about all my food sensitivities I lost a lot of options for breakfast. I have been eating a lot of eggs. Thankfully we have chickens and we have a plethora of eggs available everyday. Even I am creative I was getting tired of eggs everyday.
A few weeks ago my cousin was visiting and I was picking her brain about food sensitivities, 3 of her children have some of the same ones I have, she mentioned that quinoa is a really good breakfast food. I was excited to give this a try.
This past weekend I picked some quinoa up at the grocery store. Yesterday I did not have to eat breakfast on the fly and had time to tinker around with a recipe. I went to the web for some inspiration and found that you can treat it like oatmeal. I came up with a recipe similar to an banana oatmeal. I made it up and took my first big bite. Yuk I did not know that I was supposed to wash quinoa repeatedly before cooking!
I retried this morning rinsing my quinoa four times. The dish was great and even my littlest guy liked it too. Today I made it with bananas tomorrow I think I will try blueberries and peaches.
