I’ve been curious about breakfast quinoa and tried a few recipes that really were not that good. This is my favorite and it’s simple to make. It’s a great high-protein alternative to warm oatmeal in the morning. One of my two boys like this! Top with fresh fruit and/or nuts or nothing at all.
Recipe from Martha Stewart Living.
- 2 cups whole or low-fat milk, plus more for serving
- 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
- 3 tablespoons light-brown sugar, plus more for serving
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more for serving
- 1 cup (1/2 pint) fresh blueberries, plus more for serving
Bring milk to a boil in a small saucepan. Add quinoa, and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, until three-quarters of the milk has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.
Stir in sugar and cinnamon. Cook, covered, until almost all the milk has been absorbed, about 8 minutes. Stir in blueberries, and cook for 30 seconds. Serve with additional milk, sugar, cinnamon, and blueberries.

I’ve also been curious about breakfast quinoa! I eat oatmeal every morning and absolutely love it and it’s many variations, but this might be a nice change!
Hope you like it, Ani!
The question is can you get your husband to eat it !

I’ve made this a couple times now and really like it. I use non-dairy milk (which is a bit sweeter) and throw in some dried fruit (raisins, goji berries…) so I end up using less brown sugar. I also love Penzey’s “Cake spice” and use a good 1/2 tsp of that instead of plain cinnamon. Great recipe Susu! PS: Reheats good too.
