We often enjoy quinoa with steamed vegetables for a light and nutritious dinner. Whenever we have leftover quinoa, I use it the next day to make quinoa breakfast porridge. You can add whatever chopped fruit and nuts that you like or even add cinnamon and apples to make apple cinnamon quinoa porridge, but this recipe is mighty delicious. A great way to start your day!
