Overnight Quinoa Recipe

Overnight Quinoa: Your New Favorite Breakfast

Prepping healthy meals for the week is a long-standing Sunday-afternoon ritual in my apartment. The menu regularly changes (except for this spicy chicken chili I've been craving the last two weeks), but one staple remains: I cook up a big batch of quinoa. All week long, my roommate and I toss this much-loved pseudograin into homemade soups and simple salads to help bulk things up and make our groceries last longer, but we never thought quinoa could make its way into breakfast until this recipe.

A few healthy staples and a cup of cooked quinoa combine for this filling breakfast that tastes like a cross between chia pudding and overnight oats. The next time you have some leftover quinoa on your hands, mix up this protein-rich recipe to try it out for yourself.
