Breakfast Quinoa

I know, I know mangos and quinoa?  How does that go together?  Well it doesn’t really, but I don’t care.  I love mangos and I love quinoa and this morning I wanted both quinoa and mangos, so please forgive my odd choice of breakfast.IMG_7861

This recipe however, is not odd at all.  If you make just the quinoa, (and leave out the mangos if you have some unreasonable bias against them) then your tastebuds will be in breakfast heaven.  Quinoa is like a 10 times healthier version of oatmeal.  Well maybe not 10 times, but it’s definitely healthier.  Quinoa is just packed with omegas and protein and tastes oh so good.

I know that I say that almost every recipe is simple to make, but this one really is.  All you have to do is pour some ingredients in a pot and let it cook.  That’s it!  How hard could that be?
