A Breakfast full of Sunshine

First of all, I hope you guys enjoyed Halloween!
It isn’t really big in Belgium : no trick or treat, no pumpkin carving and candy munching, no horror movies….
the sis and I kept it simple and watched Harry Potter to get a bit in the Halloween mood anyway.

With a black cat Halloween is never too far around the corner, of course

We started the new month with rays of sunshine in the form of breakfast.

‘Tropical Quinoa Porridge’

  • 5 T of quinoa
  • 10 T of soy milk, plus an extra splash
  • handful of chopped almonds
  • a few dashes of cinnamon
  • half a banana, chopped
  • some mango, chopped
  • for topping: a few t of Greek yoghurt and dried berries
In a small casserole heat the milk till it’s boiling, lower the heat and add the quinoa and a few dashes of cinnamon. Let this simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, chop the nuts and fruits.
When the quinoa has absorbed all of the liquid, add the nuts, fruits and a some more milk. Let this cook for a few more minutes until the banana is tender and gooey.

Top with the Greek yoghurt and berries.

 This breakfast immediately brings out the sun, even though it’s already November and it probable won’t be long until we’re dealing with cold and snow. But a girl can always try to keep on to the those rays of sunshine for as long as possible!

Love, M.
