This breakfast quinoa is high in protein but low on the glycemic index!
1CupUnsweetened Almond Milk
1Chai Tea Bag
1/2TbsCoconut Palm Sugaroptional
Before cooking, be sure to rinse quinoa well. This removes saponin (quinoa's natural coating), which can make quinoa bitter.
In a small saucepan, combine almond milk, quinoa, and chai tea bag, and bring to a boil. Once almond milk is boiling, remove the chai tea bag. Add coconut sugar (if desired) and stir. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook quinoa, covered, for about 15-20 minutes.
When quinoa is done, remove from heat and keep covered for another 5-10 minutes so almond milk can fully absorb.
To serve, put quinoa in a bowl with a little more warmed milk. This pecan + walnut milk would work amazingly as well! Garnish with pecans, coconut, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
