I have already written about quinoa and its unique features, especially important for people who follow plant-based diets. And because of the health benefits, I have used quinoa in dishes instead of rice, in salads and even in a cake. But since I never used it for breakfast dishes, I decided to give it a try.
When I was at university, there was a time when each day I ate my healthy breakfast – “Doctor Bircher’s Muesli”. The name of the dish came from a Swiss doctor who served it to his patients in his clinic. The dish is made of porridge oats that are not cooked but soaked in water overnight, grated apple and all sorts of nuts and dried fruit. So I decided to borrow this concept, but use quinoa (cooked) instead of oats.
Although I am unable to compare health benefits between the two options, one thing is for sure: the quinoa variation is at least as tasty as the oat one.

Hi, I am Agnieszka, and I am passionate about delicious but healthy food. So many healthy dishes are bland and uninteresting. I reject this. So I am inspired to create yummy recipes for healthier (often plant-based and gluten-free) versions of family favourites.
I look forward to you trying them and giving me your feedback.
