Are you tired of your usual oatmeal with brown sugar and cinnamon for breakfast? Try this version that incorporates different flavors and textures to start you day in a nutritious way!
3/4 cup Dried Goji Berries
1/2 cup Steel Cut Oats
1/2 cup Quinoa
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
Drizzle of Honey (optional)
1. In a medium sauce pan bring goji berries, oats, quinoa, salt, cinnamon, and 4 cups of water to a boil.
2. Cover and let sit off heat overnight.
3. In the morning reheat, stirring occasionally and add water if needed, until warm. About 5-8 minutes.
4. Serve. I Like to sprinkle pepitas, chia seeds, or chopped almonds on top and finish with a drizzle of honey.
Any type of dried fruit, or a mixture or dried fruits can be used.
This can also be served with milk, honey, or maple syrup.
Alternatively this can be made by bringing the mixture to a boil, reducing the heat and simmering for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally until grains are tender.
