Wake up in the morning and breakfast is served, the house smells like heaven. This is my new comfort food. Play with different types of seasonal fruits (peaches, apples, raisins, cranberries, etc.). Sprinkle chopped nuts or granola on the top to give it a little crunch.

Everyone complains of lack of flavor. The one essential missing ingredient....salt! And salt is NOT something I like. Nothing tastes good without an appropriate amount of salt. Read More

I made substituions of sweetened vanilla coconut milk instead of soy added vanilla and used mixed berries (black blue rasp and straw). It was incredibly lacking in taste and sweetness. I added stevia to my bowl and that helped. I think the ratio of quinoa and chia to flavorings is off. I'd use either a far less amount of the seeds or a much much greater amount of berries honey and whatever to give this a little more punch. As for my house smelling like heaven well I couldn't smell anything until I got near the crockpot and it smelled very earthy - not like warm vanilla and berrie porridge. Again a ratio thing probably. has potential but certainly not as as posted here. Read More

I made modifications though - almond milk instead of soy, used more water & less milk, left out the honey, used mixed berries, added cinnamon & pecans/walnuts. It's my go-to breakfast during the week. Read More

Made this overnight and must say this has quickly turned into a primary go to breakfast item. Not sure how these ingredients would create a house filling aroma though. Very simple ingredients easy to prepare and very healthy plus I can make a batch on Sunday and have enough for quick healthy breakfasts throughout the week. I did make a couple of changes. I used unsweetened almond vanilla milk instead of soy. I used 3 1/2 cups of water & added 1/4 cup of Sugar Free Zero Calorie Walden Farms Blueberry Syrup. Also added 1/2 TSP of salt. Can't wait to experiment with other seasonal fruits. For those who are not used to it quinoa definitely has a unique taste it can take some getting used to. Also quinoa is just like rice - you need to RINSE it beforehand. Otherwise you get an earthy somewhat bitter taste when cooked. So just put it in a strainer & rinse it under some cold water before cooking. Read More

I read the reviews before I made this recipe. I used the base of the quinoa and chia seeds. I did apples and cherries instead of the blueberries and added tons of spices (cinnamon ginger clove). It turned out great! I also added a wee bit of maple syrup to my bowl. I loved the texture especially! Read More

I would give the taste about 3 stars or a little less but I deducted for the disappointment equal to the difference between the final product as described and what I actually woke up to. Read More

I really tried to like this. I read the comments and still thought it would be a good base cereal and be yummy if doctored to my taste but it just didn t quite make it. I made it according to the recipe but I also added slivered almonds raspberries cinnamon and vanilla. The comment about it being earthy was correct. The comment about it needing salt was correct. The comment about it needing brown sugar was correct. I added all those things into my bowl after it was cooked but still didn t like it. Read More
