We are always looking for great breakfast ideas, as so many of the usual breakfast recipes tend to be high in sugar. Many of these breakfasts lead to a high spike in insulin leaving us hungry during the morning hours of work or school when we need to be productive. This is a great recipe that I adapted from Oprah Magazine. I love that that this breakfast recipe includes some veggies, which is also missing in many breakfast options. For kids especially, adding serving of fruit or vegetables at breakfast can help them get closer to the goal of 5 servings per day.
An extra source of protein and energy in this recipe is quinoa. This is great to have on hand already cooked and stored in the fridge. Bring 1 cup rinsed quinoa to a boil with 2 cups water or broth. Bring heat down to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes until the little thread or "belt" is released. Use in breakfast recipes, in bean burgers or even mixed into a salad.
Although this is a great breakfast recipe, I have whipped this up as a quick dinner, too!
