Quinoa for breakfast? Absolutely! In this healthy Quinoa Breakfast Bowl, the power grain gets a sweet and fruity treatment by adding some frozen mixed berries, vanilla, cinnamon, and maple syrup! Top them with Greek yogurt, fruits, nuts, and seeds!
Place quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer and rinse thoroughly with cool water for at least 2 minutes. Drain. Rinsing quinoa before cooking will remove its natural bitter or soapy taste.
Transfer to a medium saucepan, cover with 1 cup of water, cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for 15 minutes on the lowest setting, or until quinoa is tender and water is almost absorbed.
If using fresh berries, quinoa will be ready much quicker, around 5-10 minutes.
This quinoa porridge is best served fresh but if you have leftovers, store them covered in the fridge for 2-3 days maximum. Reheat in the microwave or in a small saucepan with additional milk to add moisture back.
