Breakfast Quinoa Recipe

Quinoa is a grain that is wheat-free and gluten-free, but is big on taste! The ratio is 2 cups water to 1 cup quinoa (pronounced keen-wah). It has a nutty and earthy flavor. If you pair it with apples, it can be very filling. Not only is it a great alternative to oatmeal, but it’s also good for someone allergic to wheat. Apart from that, you can even use it to substitute your rice meals if you want something more nutritious.
