I have tried quinoa prepared in a lot of different ways -- my dad even puts it in his multi-grain pancakes and in stuffing -- but this morning was my first time attempting quinoa as a breakfast cereal.
I used this recipe, threw in some flax & topped it with blueberries,
brown sugar, and chopped pecans.
At first I wasn't so sure about quinoa as porridge,
because it just doesn't compare to the more traditional and always delicious oatmeal.
At first bite I was thinking it was just okay, but by the end of my bowl I was sold -- acquired taste perhaps?!
I think I'll even work this into the breakfast rotation.
** The best thing you can do for quinoa is rinse it thoroughly, otherwise it will taste bitter & gross.
Did you know it's not a grain?
