SS Breakfast of Champions


Check out Chef Brian Nasajon’s sweet quinoa oatmeal from the new breakfast menu at SUSHISAMBA Coral Gables! Here’s his inspiration:

I really wanted to modernize a traditional breakfast staple and stay true to SUSHISAMBA flavors. Since oatmeal has been my favorite breakfast dish since I was a child, when my mother used to sprinkle brown sugar on top, I decided to start playing around with different ideas. One of my greatest challenges in cooking is creating delicious and interesting dishes that are also healthy.  Health is extremely important to me, so I kept it in mind as I began creating this dish, which is where the final decision to use quinoa came from.
