We tried quinoa for the first time the other night. I’ve heard all the hype and praise. Being a food blogger, I figured I should try it. I was easy enough to prepare–2 cups liquid to 1 cup quinoa. I used chicken broth. We all liked it. It had a nuttiness about it similar to brown rice.

The box, boasting of quinoa’s high protein content and versatility, suggested quinoa for breakfast.

This morning I gave it a whirl. I used 2 cups milk this time. I expected it to be similar to oatmeal, I suppose. We may never know.

I’ll just let you imagine how my microwave looked! Ugh! Breakfast was ruined and pricey quinoa was wasted.

Do any of you eat quinoa for breakfast? If so, please, share your success!
