Quinoa Breakfast Bowl Recipe

If you are looking for vegan breakfast ideas, other than oats, quinoa is the best option. Toppings so diverse that you will be spoilt for choice. A refreshing and satisfying vegan breakfast in Dubai to jumpstart your day. Gluten-free, low-carb and protein-rich, this dish hardly takes 5 minutes of prep time. It is ready to serve in 25 minutes! 

Ingredients

  • Quinoa, 1 cup
  • Dairy-free milk, like almond milk, 2 cups
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 ts vanilla extract

Toppings

  • A handful of dates (which are Dubai delicacies as the national fruit)
  • Mangoes, berries, apple, banana, according to choice
  • Cinnamon, coconut flakes, a drizzle of maple syrup
  • 1 cup almond milk

Cooking Instructions

  1. Mix salt, vanilla and almond milk in a pot and bring the mixture to boil.
  2. Turn down the heat and add quinoa. Let it simmer for 10-15 minutes until the consistency looks creamy (thick but pourable).
  3. Remove the pot from the flame and let it cool.
  4. Take a bowl, add 4-5 tbs of the cooked mixture and mix with a cup of almond milk. 

Serving Suggestions (2-3 Serves)

  • The easiest way to eat quinoa is with fresh fruits. The perfect morning meal!
  • For a summer-y delight, add juicy slices of mangoes and sprinkle them with coconut flakes and hemp seeds.
  • A velvety dollop of coconut cream paired with chocolate chips and nuts is the best vegan breakfast in Dubai.

Notes   

  • You can make a large batch of the quinoa breakfast bowl without toppings. You can store it in the fridge for a few days. You do not even have to cook this every day. 
  • You can also enjoy this protein vegan breakfast with sweet condiments like cloves, nutmeg, ginger and maple syrup. 
  • If you do not like to add milk, it is completely fine. The nutritional value does not change much. You will receive all the goodness of add-ons and quinoa itself.
