The first time I tasted quinoa I must admit that I wasn’t really enthusiastic but there are a lot of things that I didn’t like the first time and now I love them. I gave it a second and a third chance but with the fruit and the yoghurt and honey we loved it. After eating it several times I have discovered that quinoa can be well preserved for several days in the refrigerator after being boiled, so it’s easy to assemble in the morning each day adding different fruit.

I am submitting this recipe to Aparna, of My Diverse Kitchen, who is hosting this month’s WBB: Grains in my Breakfast,

and to Suganya, of Tasty Palettes, hosting the event Whole Grains.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of quinoa
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 Greek yogurt
  • 2 peaches
  • 1 pear
  • Strawberries
  • Blanched roasted almonds
  • honey


Directions:


Wash and rinse quinoa.

Put quinoa and water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. 

Set aside until it cools and fluff it with a fork.


Mix all the ingredients together.

Note:  The amount of honey depends on how sweet you like your breakfast.

With one cup of quinoa you can make breakfast for 3 for a couple of days or you can use it in other recipes such as salads, soups, etc.

    I’ll probably have to try it your way…I’m the same. I wasn’t too impressed the first time I tried it. looks delicious for breakfast.

  2. Ο/Η Aparna λέει:

    Quinoa isn’t a grain that’s available here. I’ve been seeing it on many blogs, but I think this is the first time I’ve seen it as fruit salad. Truly innovative, Ivy.
    Thanks for participating in WBB.

    I made some quinoa fruit salad a couple of months ago and I loved it. And quinoa has to be rinsed because it contains saponin, which gives it a bitter taste, and rinsing it gets rid of it :D

    Peter, it’s worth insisting as it is so healthy.

    Aparna, I finally found it in shops selling health products.

    Ben, thanks for info.

    Val, we must try everything at least once, don’t we?

    It looks great with yogurt! I should try that!

    I used to cook a lot of quinoa when the kid was just starting out on food, but haven’t in years. Really must get back to it! Your fruit salad is just the inspiration I was looking for I think.

    By the way, I’ve baked you a Wagyu pie :) I’ve posted it and will shoot off an email to you soon.

    This is such an interesting way to try quinoa, Ivy! I have never thought of it before. I actually really like it on its own or any way I cook rice, but I bet I would just LOVE this. Thanks for the idea!

    Usha, thanks. It’s not really creative as yoghurt and honey are very usual in Greek cuisine.

    Jenn, try it you may be surprised.

    Hi Dee. Thanks for making a Wagyu pie. Although I’ve never had wagyu beef before the whole pie sounds great.

    Elly, I am sure this is your kind of food.

    Srilekha, thanks.
