Healthy Quinoa Parfaits
Try this tasty, simple and nutritious quinoa breakfast. Replace ordinary oatmeal with this interesting layered parfait, which can be prepared one or two days in advance.
You will find a unique flavor in each layer of this delicious breakfast parfait, where the yoghurt layer with fresh fruits is followed by crunchy honey quinoa.
Quinoa is a gluten-free pseudo-cereal that contains large amount of complex proteins, dietary fiber (soluble and insoluble), vitamins and minerals. It also is the perfect source of all essential amino acids and should be, in my opinion, included in the diet of every healthy lifestyle fan. The white quinoa is the best choice for this recipe, because of its most neutral taste, but you can also try its red and black varieties, if you want to experiment.
I certainly recommend adding a layer of healthy homemade lemon curd with reduced carbohydrates and fat content into these cups. You can find the healthy lemon curd recipe here: Healthy Lemon Curd without Butter . This will move the whole recipe to even higher level, trust me.
Conjure up an interesting breakfast for your family, which will not only delight the eyes, the body but the belly as well :)
