Breakfast Quinoa with Figs & Honey
I love quinoa any time of day. I normally eat it in some sort of savory capacity for lunch of dinner, but I’ve been eating it for breakfast more and more. It is DE-licious when paired with sweet things like honey, maple syrup or fruit. This superfood quinoa breakfast bowl is one of my favorite ways to eat it.
Because figs are in season, I decided that I had to pair fresh figs with some quinoa and honey for breakfast. Figs + honey are basically a match made in Heaven. And when you throw some roasted almonds and cinnamon on top, you pretty much have the perfect breakfast.
I think I’ve eaten some version of this recipe practically everyday for the last 2 weeks, and I’m not even close to getting tired of it.
Take advantage of the short time that figs are in season, they are SO delicious right now!
- 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa (3/4 cups dry quinoa + 1 1/2 cups water)
- 1-2 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 4-6 fresh figs, quartered
- 1/2 cup roasted almonds
- You can either eat the quinoa cold or warm.
- Divide the quinoa between two bowls, drizzle honey and cinnamon, and top with figs and almonds.
Oooohh that looks absolutely lovely! What kind of honey did you use, by the way? -C
Thanks Claudine! I used Ambrosia honey that is raw and unfiltered. But you could use whatever kind of honey you like 🙂
