Quinoa Mathrooba
Mathrooba is a traditional Qatari dish that is often eaten to break the fast of Ramadan. Though the dish is normally made with chicken, this version from Vegan: The Cookbook by Jean-Christian Jury leaves out the meat for an equally satisfying, creamy quinoa dish.

quinoa
"Break out of your oatmeal rut and consider something new in that hot-cereal bowl: quinoa. Breakfast is actually my favorite meal for this teensy, protein-packed grain (which, technically, is not a grain at all but the seed of a plant in the amaranth family). Quinoa has a well-balanced amino acid profile and is especially rich in magnesium and iron. Make a fresh pot in the morning, or do it up as a side dish for dinner, relying on the leftovers to get you through breakfast. I like quinoa best doused with cold almond milk, roasted hazelnuts, and fall fruits. The reds and greens of apples, pears, and grapes make for a very pretty bowl."-Katie Sullivan Morford Recipe courtesy of Rise and Shine by Katie Sullivan Morford, © 2016 by Katie Sullivan Morford.
