Quinoa Breakfast Bowl


  • 1/4 cup tri-colored quinoa or plain quinoa, rinsed

  • 2 tablespoons dried goji berries or dried cranberries

  • 1 small banana

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or low fat milk or oat milk

  • 1 tablespoon maple, honey or agave sweetener

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened blueberries

  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts or unsalted sunflower seeds if you have nut allergies.

  • 1 tablespoon slivered almonds (optional)

  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds


In a small saucepan, bring 1/2 cup water to a boil. Add quinoa. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until liquid is absorbed, 12-15 minutes. Meanwhile, soak berries in remaining water for 10 minutes; drain. Halve banana crosswise. Slice 1 banana half; mash the other. Remove quinoa from heat; fluff with a fork. Mix in mashed banana, milk, sweetener, cinnamon and vanilla. Transfer to an individual bowl; add blueberries, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, banana slices and goji berries. If desired, serve with additional milk and sweetener.
