Righteous Breakfast Bowl Recipe

We know what’s been said about breakfast being the most important meal of the day; it fuels you and sets the tone for the rest of the day’s choices. As breakfast goes, so goes the day. Get a virtuous start to your day with a Righteous Breakfast Bowl that defies the notion that healthy food doesn’t taste good. Quinoa and steel cut oats provide protein, healthy carbs, and fiber. The sweet goodness of seasonal fruit provides important vitamins and minerals. Add a little non-dairy yogurt for creaminess, fresh ginger for zing, and aromatic vanilla; you’ll be feeling righteous all day long.

To make enough for several days, store the grains, fruit, and yogurt sauce separately then mix together when you’re ready to dig in. This recipe calls for plain, unsweetened yogurt so you can control the sweetness, but use vanilla yogurt if you prefer. Segmenting an orange with a knife eliminates the membranes and makes it a delight to eat, but feel free to peel and pull apart. It’s all good.

  1. I love the recipe, the yogurt part may not be a good Idea because any dairy is well… Not good for the body. There are too many adverse additives from start to finish on most or maybe all dairy products.

To make you feel better, Compassionate Cuisine is a vegan blog so you will never find us calling for ingredients that include animal products (the recipes calls for non-dairy yogurt). Whew! Enjoy the Righteous Breakfast Bowl!

      Oh absolutely! One of my favorite indulgences is homemade cashew milk. In my opinion, it always improves the outcome when you make it from scratch. Enjoy!!

    Line a baking tray with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, rinse the quinoa and oats in water. Pour through a fine mesh strainer, then place in a small pot. Add 2 1/2 cups water and salt. Bring to a boil, then simmer on medium heat for about 20 minutes, or until the grains have just turned tender. Strain off an excess cooking water. Empty grains onto lined baking tray and spread out to cool. Grains can be made in advance.

    In a large bowl, stir together the yogurt, syrup, ginger, lemon juice, and vanilla. Add cooled grains and toss. Add blueberries, strawberries, orange segments, and mint. Gently toss again. Serve topped with chopped nuts, or chill for several hours.
