You’re going to enjoy the versatility of this recipe. I’ve been refrigerating the leftovers, and they tasted just as great when heated throughout the week. It’s a perfect “E” breakfast. Mix it with a little vegan Greek yogurt for added protein. It takes about 10 minutes in the Instant Pot, which isn’t bad. It’s got a wonderful taste. Quinoa is one of the most blood sugar-friendly grains out there. It’s easy to digest, making it the perfect grain for breakfast. I know people don’t typically equate quinoa with breakfast, but after trying this recipe, you’re going to be totally sold on the notion.
From Ayurvedic Point of View:
Quinoa is an ancient seed that provides an excellent source of protein. It is closely linked to beetroots, spinach, and tumbleweeds. Quinoa balances all the Doshas. Those wanting to balance Vata should consume it with a little bit of healthy olive oil or ghee.
Apples are perfect for Kapha balancing. While raw, sour apples are Vata and Pitta aggravating, cooked apples, on the other hand, help to create Ojas and relieve constipation. Start every day with a stewed apple.
Cinnamon is a warm spice, with a sweet, pungent, and bitter taste. It’s excellent for pacifying Kapha and perfect for calming Vata, too. Cinnamon is used in Ayurveda to improve digestion and soothe stomach disorders.
