  • 1/2 cup red quinoa may substitute any color of quinoa here
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds toasted
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts toasted
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • 1/2 to 1 cup strawberries and blueberries or other favorite fresh fruit
  • Agave nectar or honey optional
  • Coconut cream to pour on top


  • In medium sauce pan, bring quinoa and water to boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until water evaporates, approximately 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, toast almonds and walnuts in small dry sauté pan until nice and golden but not burnt. Remove from heat and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • Combine quinoa, nuts and berries in breakfast bowls. If desired, drizzle with Agave or honey. (If using coconut milk, you do may not want any sweetener. The coconut milk makes it plenty sweet enough.)
  • Pour coconut cream over the mixture and enjoy!
