As noted this is just a formula for a great breakfast - made from whatever bits of leftover grains, quinoa, rice, etc. you have in the fridge or freezer. Enjoy! ;o) P.S. That darling custom-embroidered tea towel was a gift from the supremely-talented (in so many ways) vvvanessa. —AntoniaJames

  • Makes one serving - adjust the formula accordingly for more than one
  • Leftover cooked grain, quinoa, rice, etc. (1/4 cup per serving)
  • A different kind of leftover cooked grain, quinoa, rice, etc. (1/4 cup per serving)
  • Ground flaxseed (a couple heaping dessert spoons, or tablespoons, per serving)
  • Nut or seed butter - almond, sunflower seed, cashew, whatever -- about a tablespoon per serving
  • Nut milk, or regular dairy milk, or whatever kind of milk you like
  • Vanilla extract -- a couple of drops (no more!) per serving
  • Fresh apple, or banana, or whatever raw fruit you like (about 1/2 cup per serving) - you could also use chunky applesauce if that strikes your fancy
  • Dried fruit, such as tart cherries, apricots (chopped) (a heaping tablespoon or so, per serving)

When I'm not working (negotiating transactions for internet companies), or outside enjoying the gorgeous surroundings here in Boulder County, CO, I'm likely to be cooking, shopping for food, planning my next culinary experiment, or researching, voraciously, whatever interests me. In my kitchen, no matter what I am doing -- and I actually don't mind cleaning up -- I am deeply grateful for having the means to create, share with others and eat great food. Life is very good. ;o)
