Usually served in savory side dishes, quinoa -- a high-protein seed -- also makes a wonderful hot cereal.

    Great recipe. The time it takes and the calories from sugar and milk make it a more indulgent breakfast, if you’re really watching your weight. I substitute honey for the brown sugar. It goes very well with the recipe, but tones down the sweetness. Enjoy!

      Hi Pam, if you're looking for low carb, you definitely don' want quinoa; it has nearly 40g of carbs per cup. Add to it the carbs you're getting from the brown sugar, blueberries, and milk. You're better off with cereal.

    I love this recipe is a little too difficult to cook with 2 cups of milk so I divide it in half with water. I can leave it on the stove without checking it too much. Other than that I love it and I cook this recipe regularly

    This is a great, simple recipe for a hot breakfast that is going to keep you full. I don't consume dairy so in place of the milk I used the canned lite coconut milk and added a little cinnamon and toasted coconut. Delicious!

    This was delicious! I didn't have blueberries on hand so I just used raisins. So warm and filling. The other reviewers have used a great variety of fruits. This shows the great flexibility of this recipe. Use your imagination and tailor the recipe to your liking. YUM!

    This was so good! I subbed in almond milk for the milk and added chopped banana and shredded coconut. It was really satisfying and nice to have cooking on its own on the stove while I got ready for work.

    I made this for my son Jacob, who is 8. Jacob said "Its okay when hot, but I like to play and not eat. And when it gets tastes icky. Maybe I should eat first and play later." I made with raspberries and brown sugar. He added alot of splenda. It is his first taste of Quinoa. Next I will try something Savory.

    I LOVED this! I used the Splenda/Brown Sugar combination with Almond Milk instead of regular milk and it was so delicious. I made it for 3 other girls as well and they really liked it too! (those were honest opinions too, I did not persuade them :)
