Breakfast Solution for Leftover Rice or Quinoa

Well good morning to me!  I just discovered the most wonderful breakfast delight and I had to share!

Last night’s dinner resulted in some leftover rice and quinoa.  We blend them a lot for nutritional variety and more interesting tastes!  This is an excellent on-the-run recipe for a hearty warm breakfast:


3/4 cup cooked quinoa/rice

small handful of buckwheat

1/2 cup vanilla soy milk

handful of raisins

1 peach, sliced

small handful of green grapes

3-4 walnuts

1 tsp cinnamon


Mix grains and milk together.  Add fruit and nuts and cinnamon.  Microwave for 2 1/2 – 3 minutes.  Stir and enjoy!

Note – the vanilla soy is already pre-sweetened and I felt no need to add more.  You could always add your favorite sweetener, especially if you use unsweetened milk.  The cinnamon is a great trick for weaning off sweeteners, by the way!  It adds a punch of flavor without an ounce of sugar.
