Not much of a breakfast person, I am quite content with strong maté and a green juice. But I experimented for a while with properly food-combined mushy things, soaking and cooking every grain or seed I could think of, attempting to find breakfast foods to feed my clients and myself, of course. I stumbled upon quinoa flakes, which appear to be the perfect breakfast flake! They are light and fluffy, easy on the stomach and cook quickly. This recipe is literally a mistake, but it tastes like peanut butter for some bizarre reason and anything that tastes like a big-bowl peanut butter but isn’t, is brilliant to in my eyes.
½ C quinoa flakes
½-1 avocado, sliced
1T organic maple syrup
Salt to taste
Bring salted water to a boil and simmer the quinoa flakes until soft, about 3-5 minutes.
Slice the avocado, add to the bowl and top with maple syrup.
Stir or mash it all together. I like to mash it into a mush.
Top with more salt and, if you wish, cinnamon or cardamom.
A great way to use any leftovers is to toss the quinoa & avocado in a blender with a handful of greens (you can even add some more avocado & maple) Add 1 C water and blend with a pinch of salt. This is a fantastic post workout smoothie! You can also find my recipe on purecanadamaple.com
