#EatPretty Recipe! Berry Beautifying Smoothie Quinoa Bowl
Berry Beautifying Smoothie Quinoa Bowl
- 1 cup qunioa, dry
- 2 cups almond milk + 1/2 cup almond milk
- 2 cups (or one package) organic frozen mixed berries
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 cup fresh organic berries
HOW TO COOK THE MOST PERFECT QUINOA OF ALL TIME:
You'll be mixing 1 cup of quinoa to 2 cups of liquid (here, nut milk is best, but for other dishes, use organic veggie broth or filtered water and bit a himalayan salt). Bring 1 cup of liquid to a light boil in a small saucepan. Add dry quinoa. Let simmer and cover with a lid for 10 minutes, until tender but not mushy. Fluff quinoa with a fork and (for this recipe) let cool in fridge. For other recipes, such as to make hot quinoa cereal (like oatmeal!) simply add more liquid too cook until it forms a porridge-like consistency.
Puree frozen berries with extra almond milk in a blender. Serve 1/2 cup of cooked and cooled quinoa with 1/2 cup of blended smoothie. Top with pumpkin seeds and fresh berries!
