My favorite breakfast is oatmeal cooked on the stove, but with a very busy week ahead, I wanted to try a healthy recipe that I could prepare in advance. This turned out wonderfully, and is another way to use quinoa. The original recipe suggested fresh blackberries and toasted pecans, but I used mixed berries from the freezer and almonds which I had on hand.

1 c. skim milk
1 c. water
1 c. quinoa (Rinse quinoa as directed on package.)
2 c. mixed berries
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1/3 c. sliced almonds
Combine milk, water and quinoa in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 15 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Turn off heat; let stand covered 5 minutes. Stir in berries, cinnamon, and almonds.

  2. Quinoa! I haven’t had it in so long! Thanks for the reminder! 🙂

  3. So glad you liked it, Kerry.
    I just demo’d the Warm and Nutty Cinnamon Quinoa as part of a keynote speech in front of 350 people in Chicago.
    In my PowerPoint, I featured the 9 variations I’ve found of it online. Yours makes 10!
    n.b. sends a free, healthy, easy, quick recipes every week to anyone who wants one.

  4. This could be a serious contender with my steel cut oatmeal and peanut butter breakfast
