Hot Cinnamon Quinoa with Nuts & Berries

Instead of the traditional hot cereal breakfasts, such as oatmeal, I felt compelled and inspired to try something different after stumbling upon this Warm and Nutty Quinoa Recipe from 101 Cookbooks. I omitted the non-dairy milk in my most recent time making it and used walnuts instead of pecans. I also used blueberries and strawberries as my fruit toppings.

My husband loves the simplicity of this meal. The crunch of the walnuts along with the sweet notes of agave and kick of the cinnamon make this a worthwhile breakfast endeavor. Red quinoa also has a rich, hearty, slighty nutty flavor and is packed with protein. Quinoa is also gluten-free to boot for those with sensitivities.

Overall, we’d rate this dish a 5 out of 5 carrots on the veganlicious scale.
