quinoa breakfast surprise


This breakfast is certainly a taste sensation. It is dense, crunchy and creamy all in the same mouthful. It’s also sweet, savory and tangy in every bite.

This is a super quick breaky to prepare, however when eating it you’ll feel like you’re at a fancy restaurant. If you have guests, why not knock their socks off with this breakfast treat…

Getting into the kitchen and cooking your own food is the best thing you can do for you and your families health and it’s such a privilege too. Happy cooking!
