Blueberry Maple Quinoa

A yummy way to enjoy quinoa for breakfast!

Servings: 2

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • Generous drizzle of maple syrup
  • 1 cup blueberries (or fruit of choice)

Cook quinoa in one and a half cups of water in a pot, bringing to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 15-20 minutes or until water is absorbed.

Remove from heat and add non-dairy milk. Spoon quinoa into bowl. Then drizzle maple syrup on top and sprinkle with blueberries.

    What a fabulous breakfast idea! This rice milk is delicious so I’m betting this recipe would be as well!

    I’m going to try this tomorrow morning!

    I’ve never had quinoa for breakfast, but I imagine it’s amazing with blueberries and maple syrup! Sounds delicious.

    Wow, great idea. I eat very little grains but quinoa is one of them. I really miss breakfast cereal and this will fit the bill! Thank you

    Yum! This looks so good! Thanks for the great idea…I’ve been a bit stuck for breakfast these days!

    I made this for breakfast, it looked like walking through fields of blueberries.
    Maple syrup is fall-alicious.

    Hi Jen,

    What does it taste like?
    Anything like porridge (as it’s sweetened and vanilla flavour?)
