I think it is pretty obvious that quinoa is my favorite grain. It’s just so… beautiful and scrumptious and versatile and healthy and I love everything about it. Obsessive much? Nahhhh.
I made a big ol’ batch of quinoa on Sunday night and thought it would be fun to spice it up for the week. I like to call this BLD Quinoa, because you can really eat it for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner.
Breakfast Lunch Dinner Quinoa
- 1C quinoa, uncooked
- 2C water
- 1C dried cranberries (less or more)
- 1/2C sunflower seeds
- 2T honey
- 1/4C balsamic vinegar
1. In a medium sized pot, bring 2 cups of water and 1 cup quinoa to a rolling boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer until all water is absorbed. Transfer into a large tupperware and refrigerate for 2 hours.
2. Once your quinoa has cooled, mix in the rest of your ingredients.
You can have it just like so for breakfast or even add a little greek yogurt and more honey. Orrrrr you can put it on top of spinach and cottage cheese with a dash more balsamic vinegar.
On a different note. Look what I got yesterday at Food Day…
Coco Bananas Peanut Butter. Yes, that means chocolate + banana + peanut butter. Um, heaven? Not only was the peanut butter delicious, but it also benefits an amazing cause!
PB Crave had their product launch yesterday at the U of M’s Food Day! They donated all of the proceeds to Project Peanut Butter, a nonprofit supporting malnutrition. Peanut Butter saves the worldOther flavors by PB Crave include Razzle Dazzle, Cookie Nookie, and Choco Choco. Dayum. Num num. I tried all 4 flavors and liked Coco Bananas best
