There is no doubt that quinoa breakfast recipes are a great way to start the day. But, up until now I’ve never been successful at getting my children on the bandwagon. The baby (Ok, he’s five but who’s counting?) always wants eggs and toast and my oldest (aka the commander) is a lot like me in that he would generally prefer something other than breakfast food in the morning.
Still, I couldn’t help but want to try out the Baked Oatmeal recipe from Super Natural Every Day. I knew it had all makings for the perfect quinoa breakfast that my kids would love.
An Amazing Quinoa Breakfast Recipe!
Its the perfect dish for a brunch or just a lazy weekend morning.
Soaking Quinoa Helps Make it Softer and Easier to Rinse
I actually started putting it together the night before because I would rather use my time in the morning drinking coffee and snuggling with the boys before they jump into action than working in the kitchen.
So, I started out by soaking the quinoa to make it softer and help get rid of the saponin.
I then got out everything I was going to need. (Of course, some things had to go back in the fridge but I always like to do this prior to cooking just to make sure I have everything.)
It didn’t take long at all to put everything together in the morning.
I had plenty of time to drink coffee and snuggle while the quinoa casserole baked.
