Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Author: Molly Patrick of Clean Food Dirty Girl


  • Cooked quinoa
  • Raisins
  • Berries
  • Banana sliced
  • Walnuts chopped
  • Unsweetened non-dairy milk


  • Place the quinoa in a bowl and top with plenty of raisins, berries, banana and walnuts and then add as much non-dairy milk as you like,
  • Cooking quinoa is really fast. I like to cook a batch on the weekend and eat it throughout the week. 1 cup of uncooked quinoa (175g) makes about 2 1/2 cups of cooked quinoa (515g).
  • The ratio to cook quinoa is 1 part quinoa to 2 parts water. So if you were making 1 cup of uncooked quinoa you would cook it in 2 cups of water. It takes about 10-15 minutes to cook. Add the quinoa and the water to a pot, turn the heat to low after it comes to a boil and then place a lid on the pan at an angle.
  • Cook until the water has been absorbed and the quinoa is cooked and fluffy.


Sometimes the most simple food is also the most yummy. This is a perfect example of that. How much you add of each ingredient is entirely up to you. The reason why this dish works so well is because of all the different textures. Be sure to add enough of each ingredient so that every bite is bursting with texture.
