CROCK POT QUINOA BREAKFAST

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups quinoa, rinsed well
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup chopped dried fruit, unsulphered (any type or a mixture)
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup dates, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 cup chopped Brazil nuts (optional)

Directions

  • Place all ingredients in a crock pot and turn on warm overnight or for 10 hours.
  • Add some soy milk if desired.
  • If you'd prefer making this in the morning, then simmer the quinoa in the water for 10 minutes and then add rest of ingredients and simmer for 5 more minutes until all liquid is absorbed.

Notes

(taken from diseaseproof.com)

Note: When done in a crock pot, if a crust develops around the edges, just dispose of that part.

Quinoa is a grain which is a good source of iron, protein, and other nutrients.

Be sure to rinse it well, using a small screen strainer, since some of the bitter coating may not have been removed during processing.
