Quinoa Breakfast Bake

As we started The Daniel Plan, a big worry for me was saying goodbye to Oats and Wheat/Gluten for the 10 day detox.  So far so good thanks in part to QUINOA.  It serves great for breakfast, works for lunch, and is excellent to round out dinner.

A favorite new recipe from The Daniel Plan book is Quinoa Breakfast Bake.  I LOVE this!  It’s a make it once and get several breakfasts out of it dish.

Final switch was adding a serving size to a bowl with unsweetened almond milk, stirred to a consistency of oatmeal.  I mixed in a spoon of almond butter then warmed it in the microwave.  Topped with chopped, raw walnuts and berries this was another satisfying breakfast… and was super satisfying on a cold, snowy morning!

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups red or white quinoa
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 TBSP cinnamon
  • 1 tsp stevia extract

Instructions

Bring 3 cups of water to a bowl, add ½ tsp of salt and the quinoa. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until water is absorbed and quinoa is cooked (white string like appearance is a sign of completion).

Cool the quinoa completely. To do this, I spread the quinoa on a baking sheet and sat it on our screened porch (with the winter weather it sped up the cooling time).

While quinoa is cooling, preheat oven to 375*. Spray an 8x8 inch baking pan. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, stevia and cinnamon until completely combined.

Pour cooled quinoa in a large bowl. Add egg mixture and stir to combine. Pour into baking dish and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until set and golden brown. Cool completely.
