Breakfast Quinoa

Breakfast QuinoaI usually prefer savory foods for breakfast but every now and then I crave something sweet. I ran out of oatmeal but I had quinoa in my pantry and have been wanting to make a sweet breakfast quinoa.
I cooked the quinoa in water with a little sugar, vanilla and salt. After fluffing it up with a fork, I stirred in some half and half to make it rich and creamy. Then I topped it off with fresh sliced strawberries and a little more sugar or honey to taste.Breakfast Quinoa
The breakfast quinoa kept me full for a long time thanks to the protein and fiber found in quinoa, while the strawberries provide a good dose of vitamins and antioxidants.Breakfast Quinoa
