Quinoa for Breakfast

Breakfast Quinoa
One of our favorite new foods in quinoa. I had never had it before going on the elimination diet, but now we have it quite often. I was really intrigued when my friend said she had quinoa for breakfast. I gave it a whirl and it is delicious! It's a nice change from oatmeal.

Breakfast Quinoa 

1/2c red quinoa
1c water
rice milk (or other milk)
brown sugar
slivered almonds
blueberries (or other berries)

Cook quinoa according to directions on box. Drizzle with honey. Add a pinch (or more) of brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir in rice milk, slivered almonds and blueberries.

I've tried it with regular quinoa too, but I really prefer it with the red quinoa -- much better! I don't really measure anything out, I just stir it all in until it looks (and tastes) good.


  1. Ooh, that looks (and sounds) good! I've been trying to figure out things to do with quinoa, and haven't found "the" recipe yet, but I will definitely have to give this a try!

  2. I love experimenting with breakfast grains! I think my current favorite is millet.

  3. I haven't tried it for breakfast before...looks good! I love quinoa stuffed green peppers.

    Have you tried amaranth yet? It's really good popped like popcorn.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I love to hear from you.
