Raspberry Walnut Grain Bowl

Any given day it’s a good bet that I have a bowl of cooked quinoa in the fridge. I make it a lot. Like here. And here. And there’s always leftovers. Usually I’ll eat it the next day with some cooked veggies, or I’ll add some to a salad. But now I’m gonna really get crazy here… How about quinoa for breakfast? Just reheat some leftover quinoa with milk (be it from a cow, coconut, almond or soy), add a little cinnamon, fruit, nuts and honey and you’ve got one fancy start to the day. It’s like grown-up oatmeal. Play around and try out your own combo, or follow this recipe to make your own breakfast grain bowl.
