Nothing brightens our morning like a wholesome, nutritious breakfast. We’d be hard-pressed to find one simpler and more versatile than this vegan quinoa cashew granola from Love Is Served: Inspired Plant-Based Recipes from Southern California, a collection of recipes from L.A.’s beloved Café Gratitude.
Much of its nutritional value can be chalked up to the macambo beans. “Macambo is a part of the same plant family as the cacao bean,” writes chef Seizan Dreux Ellis, “and has been used for centuries by Amazonian healers. It has a very high protein content and is rich in both fiber and omega-9 fatty acids.”
If you can’t find them at a store near you (Ellis recommends ordering them online through Imlak’esh Organics), feel free to substitute with an extra cup of cashews. Serve the granola à la Café Gratitude over coconut yogurt with fresh seasonal fruit, enjoy it like cereal with a glug of plant-based milk or just nosh on it solo.
