Quinoa as Breakfast Cereal

Mary Brum has a vast knowledge of foods that are high in nutrients and ranks Quinoa as one of the top on her list of healthful foods. She is very impressed with the goodness of this grain. She has shared some of her recipes for a breakfast cereal using Quinoa as well as suggestions on making a salad with this grain. Mary suggested checking this web site for more Nutition Information on Quinoa.

Here is Mary's recipe


  • 1 Cup Quinoa Grain
  • 2 Cups Filtered Water
  • Pinch of Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt (optional)

When it is done, add:

  • Honey or Agave Nectar or sweetener of choice
  • Ground Cinnamon or Cardamom
  • Walnuts/Pistachio - optional


  • Bring to a boil and lower the heat, allow to cook slowly to absorb the liquid for 15 minutes or a little longer.
  • Fluff up with a fork. Serve with a little honey or Agave Nectar and ground cinnamon and perhaps some walnuts, etc.
  • A fantastic vegan treat and nutritious too
