Some cooked recipes scream at you to be brought to life. My GF sent over this Nutty Strawberry Banana Quinoa, which was super yum cooked but could be easily raw by sprouting the quinoa rather than cooking it. Plus raw kicks up the nutritional content and while quinoa is naturally a complete protein and gluten free, when sprouted it's chalk full of enzymes too. 1/4 cup dry quinoa, sprouted 1/4 tsp vanilla pods, ground OR vanilla extract to taste 1/4 tsp cinnamon, powder 1/2 cup, raw nut milk or coconut milk 1/2 banana, sliced OR fruit of your choice 1/4 pint strawberries, sliced OR fruit of your choice 1 tbsp coconut flakes 1/2 tsp honey OR maple syrup (optional) Mix dry ingredients by hand, add vegan milk and top with fruit. Make single serving. Dry ingredients will last in the fridge for a few days, great recipe to make on a Sunday as your morning breakfast for the week and add whatever fruit suits your taste each day.
