Quinoa Fruit Salad

Sharing is caring!


The first time I tasted quinoa I must admit that I wasn’t really enthusiastic but there are a lot of things that I didn’t like the first time and now I love them. I gave it a second and a third chance but with the fruit and the yoghurt and honey we loved it. After eating it several times I have discovered that quinoa can be well preserved for several days in the refrigerator after being boiled, so it’s easy to assemble in the morning each day adding different fruit.

I am submitting this recipe to Aparna, of My Diverse Kitchen, who is hosting this month’s WBB: Grains in my Breakfast,

and to Suganya, of Tasty Palettes, hosting the event Whole Grains.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of quinoa
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 Greek yogurt
  • 2 peaches
  • 1 pear
  • Strawberries
  • Blanched roasted almonds
  • honey


Directions:


Wash and rinse quinoa.

Put quinoa and water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. 

Set aside until it cools and fluff it with a fork.


Mix all the ingredients together.

Note:  The amount of honey depends on how sweet you like your breakfast.

With one cup of quinoa you can make breakfast for 3 for a couple of days or you can use it in other recipes such as salads, soups, etc.

I really should try quinoa again. You're absolutely right. I like this sweet version! I think I read somewhere about a quinoa pancake.

Usha, thanks. It's not really creative as yoghurt and honey are very usual in Greek cuisine.

Jenn, try it you may be surprised.

Hi Dee. Thanks for making a Wagyu pie. Although I've never had wagyu beef before the whole pie sounds great.

Elly, I am sure this is your kind of food.

Srilekha, thanks.
