Breakfast Quinoa with Fruits & Honey - #breakfastseries


Breakfast Quinoa with Fruits & Honey

This week, IHCC members are cooking with any Ellie Krieger's dish using ancient grains, i.e. farro, kamut, spelt, barley, blue corn, teff, millet, quinoa, amaranth, wild rice, buckwheat, freekah, chia, polenta.

Hmmm. Let's see, I have kamut, barley, millet, quinoa, and buckwheat in my pantry, and I want to make something that will include honey. Ellie's Honey Harvest Quinoa popped up in my mind right away! I have made mine with adaptations, as usual. :D

Pink and green, my favorite color combo nowadays.

Recipe adapted from here.

Ingredients:
(Serves 2) 

1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed
1 & 1/3 cups water
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons honey, plus more for drizzling
1/2 large purple dragon fruit (pitaya), peeled & cut into chunks
A handful cashew nuts, lightly roasted

How to:

1. Place quinoa in a pot with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then decrease heat and let it simmer, covered, for 5 minutes.

2. When the quinoa is cooked, turn off heat and set aside to cool. Once cool, fluff the quinoa with a fork. Stir in milk, honey, and dragon fruit. Mix until well combined. 

3. Serve in bowls, top with cashew nuts and a drizzle of honey.


I could do with moreeeee honeyyyyy!

The day starts right with such delicious breakfast. :)

  6. That is one bright dish. I have not had dragon fruit before. I wonder if it is available in the states?

    1. It's called pitaya in the states. But I'm not sure where to get them though.

  9. Loving the color from the pitaya. When I buy dragon fruit here the white one is more plentiful but Whole Foods has started carrying the frozen stuff so maybe there will be pink breakfasts in my future too! ;-)
