Confetti Breakfast Quinoa with Coconut Peanut Butter and Honey

Posted Aug 30 2012 6:48am
Quinoa, (pronounced "KEEN-wah") is quite the impostor.  It looks and acts like a grain but it is actually a tiny little seed - and is therefore an awesome source of protein.

For vegetarians and meat eaters alike, quinoa makes a great alternative to rice, oatmeal or any grain and is super quick cooking; rice will typically take 45 to 50 minutes, but the mighty quinoa only cooks for fifteen minutes and rests for five.

Most people think of it as a savory food, but I'm here to tell you that it's perfect for breakfast!  Try it with some natural peanut butter or this Earth Balance Coconut Peanut Butter Spread - filling and satisfying for breakfast and the flavor of coconut and peanut butter together is unexpectedly delectable.
