Cinnamon Quinoa Porridge

I dare to say that quinoa is the most important grain for vegans. It is packed with essential fatty acids (minimum quantity), healthy carbs, fiber and high quality protein. When, I mean HIGH QUALITY PROTEIN is that it almost has ALL of the AMINO ACIDS, which are the BUILDING BLOCKS of protein. It is very important that you understand this fact because not every protein has the amino acids.

The quinoa is mostly consume as lunch or dinner but if you use your creativity and explore your culinary skills, you can enjoy this ancient grain as breakfast or dessert. For example, I cooked a Cinnamon Quinoa for breakfast an topped it with mango, kiwi and Icadelicias Almond Spread.
