Quinoa is one of my favorite things to eat for lunch and/or dinner and now breakfast too! I was not at all sure how this was going to cook up and become something creamy in consistency, but it did and it was TERRIFIC! Did I shout that loud enough? This is one delicious alternative for breakfast and the best thing about this recipe is that you can add anything you want and make it your own. Raisins, walnuts, pecans, chocolate chips, fresh fruit and whatever you like for sweetener (mine is agave syrup) . . . the possibilities are endless and certain to be delicious.
