Maple pumpkin quinoa with pecans is a healthy, delicious, and filling breakfast for fall, or any time of the year.
A few years ago I shared this to a lot of happy campers online. There were a lot of great responses, so I thought I would share it again. One of my favorite ingredients to use in this hot cereal is pure maple syrup from Indiana. I get it from Burton’s, and I think it makes the quinoa a bit more sweet and decadent.
Quinoa is one of those super-healthy foods that’s so delicious and easy to prepare, you wonder why you don’t eat it more often. Packed with protein, fiber and minerals, it makes a great (and gluten-free) breakfast! Though it is considered a whole grain, quinoa is actually a protein-rich seed. It makes a great alternative to oatmeal in the morning!
