Leftover Quinoa Oats Recipe

This is a great way to use up any leftover quinoa from the night before! Hearty and healthy, this breakfast is a great addition to your summer meals.

I had leftover quinoa the last day of my ovulatory phase and I was craving something warm for breakfast and so……voila! This summer breakfast was created. This recipe was inspired by WomanCode, Alisa Vitti. To see a list of all the healthy recipes this book has urged me to creative cook, click here.

Hi friends!! I’m Jenni, The Nerdy Gourmet. I love books and I love food. Combining the two with a splash of travel has become my passion. I am a self taught cook/baker and I believe that everyone can cook from scratch! I’m here with recipes and Nerdy Tips to help along the way.  
I review books, mostly ‘read’ via audio, and I create recipes inspired by the story lines. Sometimes if I am deeply moved by a story, I will travel and try my best to experience the book- and bring you along via my blog! I provide all the photographs and content for the Nerdy Gourmet (unless otherwise noted).
