Make your own cafe breakfast at home
Do you love to go out for breakfast at your favourite cafe? Cafes and restaurants always make their breakfast bowls look so attractive with fresh, seasonal fruits and a variety of delicious yoghurts and toppings. It can take some effort to create the same breakfast meals at home, but once you find the right combinations, you can make them whenever you like.
This easy recipe for quinoa porridge below, is a bowl that I enjoy for breakfast or after the gym, to give me energy for the day ahead. I add vanilla yoghurt, maple syrup, walnuts and sliced apple for some crunch and sweetness, however feel free to add your own favourite toppings. This recipe is for one person, so make it just how you like it!
Step 1: Place the quinoa in a metal sieve and rinse underwater. Set aside.
Step 2: Pour milk into a small saucepan and place on low heat on the stove. Ensure the temperature is low, so the milk doesn't scorch the pan. Move the milk around with a wooden spoon. Slowly bring to a low simmer.
Step 3: Add the drained quinoa and simmer on a very low heat for approximately 10 minutes, stirring. The temperature needs to be low and the quinoa cooked slowly, for the seeds to fluff up and open.
Slowly heat the milk and add the extra ingredients, until all the liquid has gone
