Ninja Chow Recipe - Quinoa & Apple Warmer
Quinoa & Apple Warmer
This transitional alkaline diet breakfast is warming, filling and packed with nutrients. Quinoa is a complete protein, containing the full amino acid range and is rich in the alkaline minerals manganese, magnesium and iron whilst containing heaps of vitamin b2 and fibre.
The combination of complex carbs, fibre and protein means that quinoa will leave you with heaps of sustained energy and you will feel full right up until lunch.
Cook the quinoa according to the packet instructions, but this is generally to rinse the quinoa in a sieve and then add 50% more water than quinoa i.e. for 1 cup of quinoa you’d add 1.5 cups of water. Then bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
As you’re reaching the end of the 15 minutes, grate the apple in and cook for a further 30 seconds, grate in the zest of the lemon and squeeze a little lemon in to taste. Now serve in bowls with a sprinkle of cinnamon and voila! Delicious and warming.
Note: if you want to add raisins (and we only recommend this while transitioning) then throw them in just before you grate in the apple.
This food is very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber and Manganese, and a very good source of Vitamin C.
