Quinoa Oats Mix Vegetable Crepe/Dosa - Protein Rich

Quinoa Oats Mix Veg Crepe 
Know what you Eat - Much talked about quinoa in this blog..for those who are new its a recently rediscovered ancient "grain" native to South America, quinoa is high in protein, the protein it supplies is complete protein, meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids. Quinoa's amino acid profile is well balanced, making it a good choice for vegans concerned about adequate protein intake, also quinoa is especially well-endowed with the amino acid lysine, which is essential for tissue growth and repair. In addition to protein, quinoa features a host of other health-building nutrients. As we all know Oats, via their high fiber content, are already known to help remove cholesterol from the digestive system that would otherwise end up in the bloodstream.Coming to the recipe, its an instant mix veg pancake/crepe/dosa for yummy healthy and fuller breakfast. I am glad me and my kids just love it. Sending this to  Healing Foods - Whole Grains event by Siri guest hosted by Simona and Shobha's Good Food Event
