A simple and cozy breakfast that'll keep you fueled and energized all morning long.

  • Quinoa, uncooked, 3 tbsp(s)
  • Old fashioned (rolled) oats, ½ cup(s)
  • 1% milk, 2 cup(s)
  • Cinnamon, ground, ½ tsp(s)
  • Vanilla extract, 1 tsp(s)
  • Olive oil spray, 3 x two-second spray(s)
  • Apple, 1 small, cored, sliced into thick rounds
  • Low fat cottage cheese, 1%, ½ cup(s)
  • Passion fruit, 2 fruit(s), without refuse, or canned pulp
  • Sesame seeds, 3 tsp(s)

Method

Combine the quinoa and oats in a medium saucepan. Add the milk, cinnamon and vanilla and bring to a simmer, stirring. Reduce the heat to low. Partially cover and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until porridge thickens. Remove from heat.

Meanwhile, spray both sides of the apple slices with oil. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the apple slices and cook for 2 minutes until light golden, turn the apples over, add 1 tablespoon of water, cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until just tender. Remove to a plate and cover to keep warm.

Spoon the quinoa and oat mixture into two bowls. Top each bowl with ¼ cup cottage cheese, half the apple, passion fruit pulp and sesame seeds to serve.
