Breakfast Quinoa

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I used to have oatmeal occasionally but the oats i have are not gluten-free, and I would rather splurge on some new baking products and chicken this week than certified gluten-free oatmeal. 

 

I feel like quinoa may be healthier, does anyone have any breakfast quinoa recipes to share? I was thinking cinnamon, raisins and walnuts? Thoughts?

I can't eat Quinoa anymore...but did use it when dx'd for breakfast and lunches.

 

I'd make large batch and then put in ziplocks to use for each meal.

 

Breakfast - cinnamon and apples, ginger and peaches, sage with egg or spinach

 

Lunch -- any veggies or cubed meat added in.

It is a wonderful gluten free grain alternative packed with protein which I hope to get back one day : )

I sometimes make what I call quinoa oatmeal.  I cook it up in a pot with half milk, half water, and whatever fruit like granny smith applies, a dash of cinnamon, etc.  It keeps through the week nicely.  Here are two recipes of that kind of preparation, one is DF:

Yes, usually when I make it, I will use 1C of dry quinoa which makes 3-4 big servings, and it stays in the fridge well.  Quinoa doesn't overcook and change texture easily so the texture keeps, too.

Is there a type of quinoa that is better than another?  I really need to find an oatmeal substitute.

 

I find that usually Bobs red mill has the best price per ounce.  They also have a solid gluten-free claim on theirs and some brands lack that.  Those zip top packs can be cheaper but there isn't a lot in there.  Bobs red mill is pre rinsed, and some others are, too, but you definitely always need to rinse your quinoa either way to get rid of the bitter stuff that clings to the outside.  If the method of cooking calls for soaking, toss the soaking water before cooking.

 

Chex makes oatmeal?????

 Yep, it is new!  See this thread: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/108191-chex-gluten-free-oatmeal/
