Feel full and satisfied all morning long with this protein-packed twist on oatmeal.


Ingredients

Toppings (optional): maple syrup, extra milk, yogurt, nut butter 

Preparation
  1. In Round Steamer, add quinoa, protein blend, and milk. Stir well to combine. Microwave, uncovered, on high 6 min. Stir; microwave an additional 5–6 min. There will still be liquid in the steamer, but it will have thickened. Remove from microwave. Stir, then let sit 5 min to allow quinoa to absorb more liquid. 
  2. Meanwhile, slice bananas.
  3. Divide quinoa between four bowls. Thin out with more milk, if desired. Top with banana slices, whole food topper, and maple syrup, if desired.  
Tips

If you have time, rinse and drain quinoa before cooking. This will help remove saponin, a natural coating, which can make quinoa taste bitter.

Do not cover the quinoa with a lid as it cooks in the microwave; it will create too much steam and may spill over the sides of the steamer.

Soy milk is comparable to dairy milk in terms of protein content. If using another milk such as almond, rice, or cashew, serve with 12 cup Greek yogurt.

Perfectly Balance Your Plate

Serve with 12 cup berries and 1 tbsp nuts or seeds.
