Even though I’m not the biggest fan of traditional breakfast food, I almost always wake up starving. In fact, I can skip dinner fairly easily…but breakfast, not a chance.
One of my favorite ways to start the day is with a quinoa breakfast bowl. Many times this will consist of quinoa, beans, veggies, avocado and hummus. But lately, I’ve been loving this easy breakfast bowl that actually almost resembles breakfast food.
Since it comes together in just a few minutes, it is perfect for those mornings where Skye is up before 5am and the rest of the house is sleeping for a couple more hours.
I love those quite moments where the two of us are having breakfast together.
She’s not quite ready for this dish just yet, but she does do fairly well with quinoa, especially if I mix it with avocado.
What’s your favorite way to start the day?
- 3/4 cup cooked quinoa
- 1 ounce goat cheese or vegan goat cheese
- 3 dates, chopped fine
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
- Place quinoa in a bowl and toss with goat cheese, dates and pumpkin seeds. Drizzle with maple syrup and serve.
