Hearty Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Posted on June 6, 2014
Hey Everyone! Happy Friday! I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy some beautiful summer weather! I wanted to stop by and share my new favorite breakfast with you today! This Quinoa Breakfast Bowl is a great hearty breakfast that will help you stay full at least until lunchtime! Maybe you’d never think of starting the day with quinoa, but with its high protein, fiber and iron content, it’s a great choice, and a good alternative to sugary cereal or oatmeal. And after a big bowl of this colorful goodness, it’s hard not to have a good morning!
1/4 cup – 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
Variety of fruit
Chopped nuts or seeds
Drizzle of honey
All you need to do is cook your quinoa (you can cook it with milk instead of water to make it creamier, but I usually just use water), let it cool slightly and then put it in a big bowl. Add some fruit (I like adding mixed berries), chopped nuts (almonds, pecans or walnuts), yogurt (plain or flavored, or add some Greek yogurt to make it even heartier) and drizzle everything with some honey!

    I often mix quinoa into my oatmeal, but this sounds like a fun change! These other two recipes look yummy too!

    My daughter introduced me to quinoa and am always looking for new ways to serve it. This looks delicious and I’m going to give the kale and corn patties a try as well. I have a LOT of kale in the garden and am needing new recipes for it, too. Thanks for the inspirations and have a great weekend!

    This looks incredible, Maria! I have not tried quinoa in a sweet recipe before….or for breakfast, for that matter…..but I can’t wait to try this!
