Quinoa for breakfast anyone? 4-17-13

Good Morning friends!!
Hope your week is going well.  I did a bunch of food prep this weekend so I am sharing the food I made this week.....more to come like home made spring rolls with peanut free peanut sauce, taco salad, carrot cake bars and protein macaroons.

Today I am sharing my breakfast.  Crock Pot Quinoa which is quick and easy, not to mention very tasty.

Breakfast Crock Pot Quinoa-6 servings

1 bag sprouted quinoa, 1 1/2 cup
1 can light coconut milk
2 cup water
2 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp vanilla
1 1/2 ripe mangos, peeled and chopped into bite sizes (should have been 2 but mysteriously half of one disappeared)
1 container of raspberries
6 tbsp chopped macadamia nuts
Place quinoa, coconut milk, water, honey and vanilla in crock pot.  Cook on low for about 4 hours.  Keep an eye on this, all crock pots vary with cooking times and temps.  It would be awful to ruin a whole bag of quinoa or have to eat mush!

 When fully cooked, turn off and remove from the heat source because it will continue to cook.  Stir in mango pieces.  I portioned into 6 containers so breakfast is ready for the week.  Top with raspberries and 1 tbsp chopped macadamia nuts.
