Vegan Month of Food (Vegan Mofo) 2015

Vegan Month of Food has arrived!  Every year since going to a plant based diet I have silently admired this celebration of vegan culinary pursuits across the web.  Bloggers get together to get the word out on how delicious, colorful and exciting vegan food really is.

This year I'm going to try my hand at participating in Vegan Month of Food! I'll be following along a set list of inspirations for posting different recipes or tidbits of info on the life of a plant based home cook.

If you'd like to follow along with the fun, hop on your favorite social media outlet (IG, twitter, etc...) and search #veganmofo or #vgnmf15 - You'll be sure to find such an abundance of mouth watering vegan meals, your head will explode. 

Today I am sharing what we had for breakfast this morning!  I didn't look at the Vegan Mofo prompt for today until this afternoon, but thankfully I'm constantly taking pictures of our food, and we happened to have a pretty great breakfast today; so it all works out and I'm excited to share it with you! 

This breakfast comes with a handy tip - always cook more grains than you think you need at one time. Whenever I make rice, quinoa, millet, etc...I make extra.  They come in handy for leftovers in countless ways; breakfast being one of them.

Cinnamon Cardamom Quinoa Porridge with fruit
This breakfast will will keep you full all morning, and satisfies your morning sweet tooth without loading up on sugar. The best part? You can use leftover quinoa and have a hot, satisfying breakfast ready in minutes! Perfect for fast paced weekday mornings!

Serves 4

2 C. Quinoa (cooked)
2 t. Cinnamon
1 t. Cardamom
1/4 Maple Syrup
1/2 C. Almond or other non-dairy milk

Fruit and toppings of choice (I like to top ours with homemade granola and hemp seeds for added protein)

Combine the quinoa, cinnamon, cardamom, maple syrup and almond milk in a medium sauce pan and cook on medium heat until warmed through. 

Serve and top with fresh fruit granola, nuts, seeds, cacao nibs...and whatever else your little heart desires! It's that easy!
