Quinoa and Millet with Dates & Almonds

These two grains are rich in calcium and magnesium, which provide a great bone-building recipe. Unlike most other grains, quinoa is higher in minerals and is a source of good-quality protein that is much more complete than most other grains.

Ingredients

1/2 c millet
1 c quinoa
3 c filtered water
1/4 tsp fresh cardamom powder
3 dates, chopped
1/4 c almonds (raw or toasted)

 

Directions

If you are unfamiliar with the taste of cardamom try adding 1/2 tsp to this delicious breakfast as you get used to it. Cardamom is used to alleviate stomach upset and has an intriguing flavour.

Always rinse quinoa well to remove it’s bitter protective layer. (Rinse both grains) Place millet and quinoa in saucepan, add water and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to a low simmer, add cardamom, cinnamon and dates, simmer until grains are soft ~ about 20 minutes.
Sprinkle with chopped nuts and serve with soy milk.
