Sweet Breakfast Quinoa





I stumbled upon this dish whilst flipping through a Food & Wine Magazine and I was oddly inspired by this dish. I mean, really? Quinoa for breakfast? Yes, of course! What a brilliant way to start the day off as it contains a balanced set of essential amino acids and is high in fiber. What makes this dish suitable for breakfast is the sweetness from the diced dried apricots, raisins and cranberries. To top it off, a healthy dollop of ricotta cheese and orange zest. Personally, I would rather substitute the ricotta cheese with Greek yogurt. Ricotta is a bit too rich for me in the morning. Either way, this is a breakfast that will fuel you up and get you ready for the day.
