When you have something healthy, tasty and filling in the morning, it’s a great way to start a new day and enjoy the benefits of a good meal. Quinoa and chia seeds are great for vegans and everyone who wants to have a healthy, cholesterol-free meal in the morning.
You can take leftover quinoa or take quinoa flakes if you don’t have time to prepare your breakfast. Quinoa is very versatile; when you cook this recipe once, feel free to experiment with the filling and sweet sauces.
This quinoa bowl is almost fat free if you don’t use maple syrup, seeds and nuts and add more fruits and quinoa cooked in milk. The fat will come from the milk only. This recipe is oil free, too, so you can easily adjust it to your diet.

Take quinoa and rinse it. Take a bowl, add quinoa, water and salt. Top with a plate and cook in a microwave for 5-7 minutes. When the time is over, carefully stir the mixture (the steam can be hot, be careful).
Remove the upper plate and let it sit for 5 minutes. Quinoa will suck the moisture. Mix the mixture with the fork. Pour the mixture in a bowl, add milk. Top with the rest of the ingredients or anything you like.
