Looking to improve your hot cereal game but don’t love the sugary, store-bought options? This gluten-free, protein-rich quinoa bowl hits the sweet ‘n savoury middle ground. Made with nooch-packed Broth Mixes, this bowl gives you a bump of B vitamins. All the sweetness comes from honey and juicy summer peaches, not added sugar. For the record, the molasses layers in a bittersweet flavour that goes well with the peaches and provides a little iron.
