I'll start with the recipe:
1 cup water (bring to boil)
pinch of salt
1/2 Cup Quinoa Flakes or Rolled quinoa*
2 Tablespoons chia seeds (whole, or ground)
1/2 cup applesauce (apple juice sweetened)
1 Tablespoon vegetable glycerine or agave nectar
Add the quinoa and chia to boiling water, reduce heat and let bubble slowly for a couple minutes, turn off heat, and let sit for another couple minutes. Add applesauce and sweetener, stir and enjoy.
*azure standard has a good price on these in bulk, I've made them with a grain flaker as well, and it worked fine although they weren't as pretty, not that pretty matters once it's mush.
Recently I've come to the conclusion that what I've been lacking since the birth of my second child has been routine. I need a fall-back menu, something that's healthy, to always have on hand for times when I don't plan or shop for anything more exciting.
