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

This is very easy and delicious. I made as written. I will make again and again.

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!

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 cold...it 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 :)

Ever since I was introduced to quinoa two years ago, I have been making this delicious and healthy version of porridge. I make it with soy milk, delicious!
