Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

“Quinoa has been around for a while and I’m just now jumping on the quinoa breakfast bowl bandwagon. I’ve made it several times as a savoury side or salad, but never as a warm breakfast cereal. I finally gave it a try last weekend and loved it!” —Erica Schmidt, Kansas City, Kansas
