Fruity Breakfast Quinoa

I threw this together one morning when I wanted to use up some leftover quinoa, and it was so good I wrote it down quickly, before I forgot how I'd done it! Vary it with whatever fruit you have on hand, but I really like this combination of crunchy and citrusy.

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 crunchy sweet apple, such as Fuji or Honeycrisp
  • 1 orange or clementine
  • 10 to 12 seedless purple grapes
  • 10 to 12 fresh Bing cherries
  • 1/4 cup Fresh blueberries
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh mint
  • Note
  1. (To cook quinoa, I add one part quinoa to two parts water, bring to a boil, and boil gently, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Some people use more water, some less.
  3. Just make sure water is absorbed and quinoa is soft and fluffy.
  4. You can add salt if you want.) Mix fruit and chopped mint in a medium to large bowl.
  5. Add quinoa and toss gently.
  6. That's it!.
