A hard sell? Nope not at all.

Instead of your typical bowl of oatmeal or cereal (which by the way I love both of those) you can go all wild and have this! I have a few other quinoa breakfast recipes on if you would like to check them out…

Did you know that quinoa comes in a few different varieties? Red, white, black & rainbow…(rainbow is really not at colorful as it sounds, it’s a combo of the three)

Close-up this red quinoa is quite seductive…

Especially if you add the whipped cream. Which I always do.

But you all ready knew that! Enjoy…

  1. It is so pretty and a great breakfast for these last few weeks of summer! I am so sad to have to say good bye to blueberries, so this is the perfect breakfast to load up on over the next few weeks!

  2. Looks and sounds delish! question: If I chose to use Almond milk instead, do you think it would turn out just as yummy?

    • Aimee….I think you & I are on the same page. This was one of my all time favorite photo shoots. Was so fun to work with this composition & one of my favorite subjects, blueberries! Only thing i wish is that I had swapped out the background…been using it way too much lately!

  3. This is a great breakfast recipe– especially on the weekends when all you want to do is eat pancakes and waffles. As one of the world’s healthiest foods, quinoa definitely seems like a better alternative.

  4. I’m thinkin that you can probably turn this into an awesome breakfast by adding maybe some cooked oatmeal..nuts…and it also takes on the flavor you cooking it with…nice!!
