This quick, healthy recipe with simple ingredients and directions is easy to make for breakfast or a snack. Feels like Autumn to me! Quinoa is a complete protein grain with all essential amino acids and high magnesium content, plus it's gluten-free and versatile in the kitchen. It works just as well with dinner as it does for breakfast -- it's all about the ingredients you use.
