Vanessa’s Vegan Superfood, High Protein Breakfast Bowl
I love my Vegan Superfood, High Protein Breakfast Bowl recipe as it is packed full of healthy, delicious, wholefoods, keeps you full for hours and is colourful and fun! Made with quinoa flakes or oats, all sorts of nuts and seeds, and topped with yoghurt, fruit and nut butter. Bonus: you can choose what you put in it; the kinds of fruits you like best, nuts, and your favourite nut butter.
In a big mixing bowl place all the other dry ingredients and mix together.
Start to pour in water to let all the dry ingredients swell up. Start with 500 ml, then work up to 1 litre. Keep pouring in water until it becomes a thick porridge-like consistency. Give it a few minutes after you pour each bit of water - there can be a delay in things like chia seeds soaking up water.
Don’t make the mixture too runny. When you get a bit out the fridge each day to make breakfast it is nice to add a bit of hot water for warmth, which will also give it a slightly runnier consistency. But really it is up to you how you like it!
Add the cooked optional quinoa, if using. Mix in well.
Let rest for at least an hour so that the grains and quinoa flakes swell. You can also leave this overnieght in the fridge.
Breakfast Bowl Topping
When you are ready to eat, put a few spoonfuls of your superfood mix into a bowl. Maybe add a bit of extra hot or cold water if you want it more runny.
Top with items of your choice; fruit, nut butter, vegan yoghurt.
