good morning! - quinoa porridge



This is a recipe from a nonchalant mom fan and I thought it looked so delicious I wanted to share it with you right away... we are big fans of breakfast porridge of all kinds in this house so I was really excited to see a whole new variation. If you try it please let us know the results!

I love that she puts Kale in it, we put either Kale or Parsley into just about everything we eat and the kids never notice it and I always feel better about what they are eating when Kale is in involved! So thank you Aimee!

Here is what you will need:
1 cup cooked quinoa ( I cook it the night before)

1 can organic
coconut milk (full fat!)
1 medium to large kale leaf with stem removed

1 banana
cinnamon

agave or real
maple syrup ( preferably grade b)

for variations I like to add toasted sliced almonds,
carob chips, mango, diced apple, pineapple, what ever your heart desires!


Here is how to do it:

First wash kale leaf then chop it up pretty small. I like to call it confetti kale.

Then add it to the coconut milk and simmer about 5 minutes.
Add cooked quinoa.
Stir in sliced bananas. Add cinnamon to taste.
If it is not sweet enough then add your agave or maple syrup to taste.

Turn off burner and let sit a few minutes. Then serve it up.
My kids love this in the morning!

this sound delish ... a possible alternate to our oatmeal w/ flax!
