How to prepare this power breakfast quinoa bowl
Start by cooking the quinoa. Add water and dry quinoa to a medium pot uncovered and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover with a lid, and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes. Turn off the heat, keep covered, and let it sit for at least 5 minutes. It'll finish absorbing the rest of the water and be tender but not mushy.
While quinoa is cooking, chop peaches into bite-size chunks, and mince the dates. Slice or chop the banana. Set aside.
When quinoa is ready, stir in the cinnamon and cardamom (if using).
Assemble the bowl with quinoa on the bottom and top with fruit, pecans, and unsweetened shredded coconut.
If using, add a splash of your favorite unsweetened plant-based milk and enjoy!
Meal prep ideas
Feel free to meal prep this delicious, grab-and-go power breakfast by layering quinoa with fruit and nuts in a mason jar or other meal prep container. This will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Too often, we get stuck in an oatmeal rut. Don't get me wrong; oatmeal is a favorite in our home. All kinds of oats: steel cut oats, rolled oats, and the OG oat groats. We even love to bake our oats like the carrot cake baked oatmeal. However, it's good to mix up that whole grain you have for breakfast on the regular. Quinoa is a great way to do that. It's a good source of protein and also quick to prepare. Enjoy this delicious quinoa breakfast bowl warm, cold, or at room temperature.
