Red quinoa breakfast with goji & macadamias

This recipe is one of our most popular and originally featured in Sarah Wilson’s Tuesday’s Eats

1 cup red quinoa, rinsed
2 cups water
1⁄4 cup macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
1⁄4 cup goji berries
1 vanilla pod, split and seeds scraped
2 teaspoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Pinch cinnamon
½ lime juice only
Yoghurt for serving, if desired

  • Cook the quinoa in 2 cups of water until boiling. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes
  • Transfer cooked quinoa to a mixing bowl, add goji berries, macadamia nuts, vanilla seeds, ginger and cinnamon
  • Spoon into serving bowls, add a squeeze of lime and your favourite yoghurt

*Quinoa cooking tip: If all the water has not been absorbed, cover pot with a tea towel then place lid on top. The remaining moisture will dry out leaving lovely, fluffy quinoa.
