Oatmeal and quinoa with toasted almonds for a protein-packed breakfast on Meatless Monday

"Where do you get your protein?" has got to be the question most frequently asked of any plant-based eater. A fair rejoinder: "Where do you get your fiber?" Fortunately, this breakfast dish has lots of both protein and fiber, so you're getting the best of all worlds. It's adapted from a Thug Kitchen recipe, but we added toasted almonds to the lineup; maple syrup and jam are other ways you can give this breakfast a little extra kick. (If you like your vegan recipes served up with gorgeous photos and a healthy dose of profanity, be sure to check out Thug Kitchen.)
