Pretty bland. I definitely recommend adding a bit of sweetener.

We made this for breakfast after our weekend run. I had a cup of cooked quinoa left over from earlier in the week, so I cooked up 1/3c oats in 2/3 c water with half a chopped apple for each of us, then added 1/2 cup cooked quinoa. Spiced it up with some cinnamon, honey, dried chopped figs and fresh blueberries, plus a splash of milk. Will do this more often!

This is a great hearty and healthy breakfast treat! I halved the recipe and it made more than enough for a breakfast for one. I served with a little brown sugar and that sweet touch was great with the nutty quinoa. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Delicious! DD and I like this a lot. I like to use red quinoa which I toast in a dry pan like Quinoa-Toasted which gives it a nice additional flavour especially if using white quinoa. I leave out the dried fruit in order to consume less concentrated sugar and use additional grocery store cinnamon (I have yet to try it with real Ceylon cinnamon). I dab local raw honey over the cooked quinoa and serve with homemade almond milk. I feel the milk is essential. I will be making this again with fresh fruit instead. Not that fresh fruit and seeds (quinoa is a seed not grain) should be mixed in proper food combining.

I thought this was a nice change from oatmeal. I didn't have an apple, so I skipped it. I used a mixture of raisins and cranraisins and a squirt of honey which my toddler loved. Should be wonderful with the apple next time I make it.

For my first time trying quinoa (I used the flaked variety - looks like porridge flakes) and scaled backed for 1/3 cup which I felt equated to a diabetic serve but in my half sleep state coupled with slightly low blood sugar level even though I got the sifter out I forgot to rinse it and plonked it in the pot with the water and it wasn't till I bought it to the boil I remembered and it had soaked up all the water so added another 1/4 cup and proceeded to simmer for 4 minutes at which point the water was absorbed and served with a little hi-lo milk, strawberries as my fruit of choice and a drizzle of sugar free maple syrup and proceded to enjoy my first experience of quinoa, thank you **Jubes**, made for Make My Recipe - Edition 15.

This was very tasty. I added a little more cinnamon and sweetened it with maple syrup.

This was my first time making quinoa..I also used Quinoa-Toasted for a nutty taste and served with vanilla yoghurt for a lovely porridge alternative. Thanks for posting!

Wonderful healthy breakfast. Made as written using Quinoa-Toasted #16399. The apple, raisin and cinnamon combo really gives this breakfast that comfortable breakfast flavor we all so enjoy. Thanks so much for the post.
