When you want to get more protein at breakfast, try a breakfast bowl with quinoa. The goodness of chai quinoa protein, when paired with a glass of milk, gets 30 grams of protein at breakfast, which many experts now recommend as a great way to jumpstart your nutrition in the morning.
Bring 2 cups of milk to a full simmer in a small saucepan. Add quinoa, return to a simmer and reduce heat to low. Cover, leaving a tiny crack for steam to escape, and simmer until about two-thirds of the milk has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in egg white, brown sugar, vanilla and spices. Return pan to stove, covering again with a tiny crack for steam to escape, and continue to cook on low until almost all the milk has been absorbed, about 5 minutes.
Serve with an 8-ounce glass of milk and garnish with coconut flakes and almond slivers if desired.
