If you lived with me for a day, you would realise fairly quickly food waste is one of my pet peeves. I literally find a use for every scrap of food in my fridge and constantly remind my housemates not to throw out food without asking me first; as more than likely it can be used. It actually kills me to see perfectly good food in the bin…a little part of me cries inside honestly…I know it sounds a bit mad!! At home in Tipperary, we have hens so I don’t feel so bad about food scraps as the hens get to feast on them and then supply us with eggs. Leftovers is another thing people always struggle with in the kitchen and this is where this recipe for a quick breakfast delight came about. I haven’t tried it yet but would imagine any leftover grain should do the trick here, I’m thinking brown rice could be a real winner too so get experimenting!
- 100g leftover cooked quinoa
- 2 tsp almond butter
- 1 tbsp milled linseed
- 1/2 banana
- 5 tbsp milk
- I would not recommend using a bowl here unless you have a lid for it, as I made the rooky mistake and had a bit of cleaning to do. So for the second batch I used a plastic resealable container and it worked perfectly.
- Chop the banana and place all the ingredients in the bowl/container. Mix well together and place in the microwave on high for 3-4 minutes until the milk is well absorbed.
- Serve with some berries and seeds.
