This is what I made for my husband for breakfast, this morning . He was going golfing, and it’s a little chilly, actually, it’s down right freezing out there, even though the sun is shining! I hope he dressed warm enough! Oh well, a couple of bad shots and he’ll be peeling like a hot potato, hehehe. Anyway, this should stick to his ribs for a while!
I call it “QUINOA PARFAIT” Have it for breakfast or dessert!
1 cup already cooked and cooled Quinoa
A handful of Walnuts
1 cup Pineapple, chopped
3/4 cup Goat Yogurt, or Cow
Org Strawberries, cut up
Real Maple Syrup, to drizzle on top
Slice off the bottom of the pineapple and then about a 1 inch thick slice, remove center and chop it up. Should be about a cup
Chop the walnuts, either by hand or blender, they don’t have to be fine
In a small bowl, blend the two together
If you are going to have this for breakfast, put some quinoa in a bowl, add the pineapple mixture, strawberries, then, spoon some yogurt on top, garnish with blueberries and drizzle with maple syrup. YUMMM! Lip smacking, plate licking good!
*Here’s a handy trick on how to cut and keep your pineapple after you cut it: Slice off the bottom end, since that’s what I notice, ripens first, then place it on a flat plate and put it in the fridge.*
You can make as much or as little as you want! I think this would be a beautiful addition to any brunch. Use a pretty glass bowl and layer the ingredients to make a visual statement. Get creative with your own additions and have fun!
Don’t forget the Maple Syrup drizzle on top!
