Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Is there a more enticing and comforting smell than that of baking apples with cinnamon?

This smell is so particular to the sensations of comfort and warmth! It's one of my favorite smells.

Today I'm giving you a really delicious and surprisingly simple quinoa breakfast recipe that combines apples and cinnamon to make a first meal that is sure to satisfy your appetite!

I love the natural sweetness of apples. Slightly tart, they are juicy and crunchy, a perfect snack! Plus, they're good for you!

Apples are high in fiber, which helps regulate digestion, they detoxify, they help boost your immune system AND they may even help reduce the risk of certain diseases like diabetes, pancreatic cancer, and heart disease.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away forever! ; o)

 

 

Quinoa

 

Quinoa is one of the most popular healthy foods in the world.

Quinoa is gluten free, high in protein, and one of the few plant foods that contain all nine essential amino acids. (Protein is made of amino acids. Some of them are called “essential” because we cannot produce them and need to get them from food.)

It is also rich in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E, and various beneficial antioxidants.

Technically it is not a cereal grain, but rather a pseudo-cereal.

In other words, it is essentially a "seed" which is prepared and consumed in a manner similar to a grain.

Quinoa contains high amounts of flavonoids, including quercetin and kaempferol. They are potent plant antioxidants with many health benefits. This is because it has anti-inflammatory, antiviral, anti-cancer and antidepressant effects.

    Hello,

    Thank you very much for your answer :-)

    I have a ripe pear, so I will test the recipe tomorrow with almond milk and pear :-p ... I still hesitate between keeping the cinnamon or replacing it with a little bitter cocoa ;-)

    Hello Aurélie! Indeed, quinoa can be cooked with almond milk, or even coconut or cashew milk! In fact, any vegetable milk is suitable. Keep the same amount, this allows for an even creamier and more nutritious quinoa! Thank you for your comment

    Here is a very light tasty recipe for the end of winter.

    I was wondering if it was possible to make the recipe by replacing the water with almond milk.

    Have you already tried this combination?
