I love quinoa as it is inexpensive, easy to prepare, and full of great protein and nutrients since it’s a whole grain (as well as gluten free). It can be used in recipes for all meals including breakfast!
Take a look at some of my favorite Quinoa recipes…
- Make Ahead Pumpkin Breakfast Quinoa (pictured above)
- Veggie Fried Quinoa (pictured below)
Cooking Quinoa – It’s very similar to cooking white rice, takes about the same amount of time and uses the same cooking method. Bring about 2 cups of water for every 1 cup of quinoa to a boil. Stir in the quinoa and return to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium and cook for 15-20 minutes. The little white ring around the grain will separate from the grain when it is finished cooking. ~ from my One Dish Dinners site
