Posted by Overstock Drugstore on 27th Aug 2015

One of the best things about quinoa is that it can be enjoyed in many ways, whether you’re wanting a sweet breakfast or a savory dinner. Blueberry Coconut Breakfast Quinoa is among my favorite breakfast recipes.

What You Will Need:

-1 teaspoon coconut oil

-3/4 cup raw quinoa, rinsed and dried

-1 (15 ounce) can lite coconut milk

-pinch of salt

-1-2 tablespoons maple syrup

-1-2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut

-1/2-3/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

How to Make it:

Melt the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the quinoa and cook, stirring frequently, until it is toasted and golden brown, about five minutes. Next, add the coconut milk and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until the liquid is absorbed, about 12-20 minutes. Fluff the quinoa with a fork, then stir in the maple syrup to taste. Top each bowl with the shredded coconut and blueberries. Enjoy!
