Quinoa and Nut Bircher

This is a real favourite with my son and a super quick gluten, dairy and refined sugar free breakfast that packs a powerful nutritional punch.

You can serve this breakfast warm by cooking over a stove or enjoy cold straight out of the fridge. Feel free to switch up any fruits of choice that are in season. Some of my favourites are grated apples, pears and spices including cinnamon and nutmeg. A sprinkle of fresh mint is perfect in summer.

Quinoa is a complete source of protein and a good source of anti-inflammatory, mono saturated and omega-3 fatty acids, that contains high levels of antioxidants. Simply a wonderful seed to have in your diet on a regular basis.

        Hi Sharon
        I’m looking at the 3rd ingredient in this quinoa and nut Bircher recipe. It says ‘2 tablespoons of mixed toasted nuts homemade recipe here’. But then I can’t see a recipe link. Is it just a combination of any toasted nuts?
        Thank you!

          Hi Lauren, Any toasted roasted nuts would be fine. I’ll need to amend that typo as there is no additional recipe. Thanks for highlighting this. xx
