Breakfast Quinoa with Blueberries

Breakfast Quinoa with Blueberries

Introduction

Great high protein alternative to oatmeal. Found this recipe in Martha Stewart magazine. My new favorite breakfast. Takes a while to cook, but you don't have to stand over it. I make four servings without the berries, store three and add the berries to one to eat. Reheat in microwave. You can add more of milk, sugar, cinnamon or blueberries when you serve it -- but remember, that adds more calories and you don't really need it. Great high protein alternative to oatmeal.

  • Incredible!

    I've made this recipe many times. Sometimes I have fresh blueberries to use, sometimes I just use the fresh frozen from my freezer. This is a favorite breakfast for me. I substitute Almond milk for the milk and use raw honey in place of the Splenda to make a more nutritious dish. - 10/11/11

    Great recipe, very delicious!
    I find that by letting the quinoa site for an additional 5-10 minutes off the heat, it is thoroughly cooked through and is nice and fluffy - 1/16/13

  • I like making this most mornings. I use different berries other than blueberries sometimes, and I loved fresh sliced banana too. - 4/6/13

  • Surprised to see someone rated this 2 stars - this recipe made me a big quinoa fan! Though I like to use regular brown sugar and reduce it a bit, or use a bit of maple syrup instead of brown sugar. - 3/5/11
