One of our family’s favorite breakfast meals is Steel Cut Oatmeal and Quinoa. The quinoa provides additional protein and nutrients, while also “fluffing” up the oats a bit so they don’t seem quite as dense.
We only add a small portion of quinoa, so taste and texture of the steel cut oats are not affected.
We make a large batch each Sunday morning that normally lasts throughout the week.
This is an easy and healthy recipe that can be easily built upon to cater to different preferences and tastes.
You can add just about any topping to the oats and quinoa – it’s all fair game – milk (almond, coconut, etc), maple syrup, honey, fresh fruit, nuts, or whatever else you can imagine!
Our kids love it topped with fresh local berries (organic preferred!) with a maple syrup drizzle – can you blame them?
We use organic ingredients and toppings whenever possible.
