Breakfast Quinoa Bowl


  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup almond milk (or any preferred milk)
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Fresh fruits (such as berries, sliced bananas, or chopped apples)
  • Nuts or seeds (such as almonds, walnuts, or chia seeds)
  • Optional toppings: Greek yogurt, coconut flakes, drizzle of nut butter


  1. Rinse the quinoa thoroughly under cold water to remove any bitter taste.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the rinsed quinoa and water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Reduce the heat to low, cover the saucepan, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the quinoa is cooked and the water is absorbed.
  4. In a separate small saucepan, heat the almond milk over medium heat until warm. Stir in the honey or maple syrup, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Mix well.
  5. Once the quinoa is cooked, remove it from heat and fluff it with a fork.
  6. Pour the warm almond milk mixture over the cooked quinoa. Stir well to combine and allow the flavors to meld together for a few minutes.
  7. Transfer the quinoa mixture to serving bowls.
  8. Top each bowl with fresh fruits of your choice and sprinkle with nuts or seeds for added texture and nutrition.
  9. If desired, add a dollop of Greek yogurt, a sprinkle of coconut flakes, or a drizzle of nut butter for extra richness.
