Blueberry-Lemon Quinoa Bowl
This breakfast is to good not to share! Especially when you get bored of the same old oatmeal this can add a little verity to your morning routine. Between you and I the recipe says non-fat milk but when I’m craving an extra creamy treat I use whole milk.
When it’s winter time especially, hearty and warm meals are a must have. Do you get the chills during a snowy day? Even if your inside a warm house? thats why I love meals like this so much. It’s like a warm hug from the inside out.
The lemon zest is really what brings all these flavours together. Without it this dish is a little bland. Look in your spice rack for nutmeg or cinnamon to keep it exciting. Never be afraid to try new spices.
Depending what I have on hand I may even switch out the flax seeds for chia seeds. Really you can be as creative as you want! The base with this recipe is always the same – milk and quinoa. What you use to sweeten it can very also. Maple syrup is just so delicious but you can use honey, stevia or agave syrup.
