quinoa breakfast recipe with clementine and pistachio

Isn’t quinoa getting so popular? It’s pretty insane. But what I love about it, is that it’s so versatile. You can eat it in one of our delicious salads with sumac and halloumi, or with a beef stew, or as a lovely porridge with coconut milk. Coconut milk is lactose-free and the coconut is a crazy fruit. In Sri Lanka, they use coconut in so many aspects of their cooking; coconut oil for frying and cooking, coconut milk in curries, grated coconuts mixed in with their rice and rice flour staples. And… those Sri Lankans stay young for a long time. My mum looks more like my sister than my mother and I think it’s all about the coconut. Seriously… get on it – with this quinoa breakfast recipe with coconut milk!
