I had never thought to have quinoa for breakfast until I saw Jessica blog about it on How Sweet It Is. I loved the idea of combining quinoa, coconut milk, vanilla, cinnamon, pecans and a banana. Probably because it sounds more like dessert than breakfast :)
I was out of bananas and pecans, so I topped my quinoa with strawberries, walnuts and unsweetened coconut instead. It was very tasty when combined, but I didn't care for the taste of the quinoa cooked in coconut milk on its own.
Then yesterday, Alison posted a breakfast quinoa recipe which I much prefer. It is simply quinoa prepared with water, just as you would prep it for most recipes. I also love Alison's idea of preparing the quinoa ahead of time, and then heating individual breakfast servings.
