Breakfast Berries Quinoa/Desayuno de Quinoa de Berries

22

For some reason I saw not one but twice in less than a week breakfast ideas with quinoa, the curious thing about this is that I never ever saw this idea before.  So I took this as a sign that I needed to try and make a recipe with quinoa as a breakfast, after all quinoa is a very healthy food and it is actually not a bad idea to start the day with a strong healthy meal. 

Like always the ideas I saw were not 100% healthy or vegan so I had to put my chefy knowledge to work and get a recipe that suit my eating habbit and have to say it absolutely work for my taste.  This recipe is very simple, nothing fancy but yet very tasty and of course healthy.  So here I go!
