Protein Power: 7 Ways to Cook with Quinoa

Learn how to sneak the protein and fiber-packed whole grain into everything from soups to smoothies.

There’s nothing like a warm and hearty breakfast to start your day off on the right foot. Try Spiced Berry Breakfast Quinoa: Add 1 tbsp grapeseed oil to a saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 cup dry quinoa, 1 tsp fennel seeds, ¼ tsp ground cinnamon, ¼ tsp cardamom, and a pinch of nutmeg. Cook, stirring frequently, until quinoa is lightly toasted, about 3 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat, stir in 2¼ cups milk, and return pan to heat. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes or until most of the milk has been absorbed. Spoon into a bowl and top with fresh berries.
