This is my new favorite breakfast and snack, easy to prepare when I need to stop those sweet cravings and have a good source of protein. Great breakfast for my husband who has gout.

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool briefly.

  • Combine 1/2 cup quinoa and cottage cheese in a bowl. Accessorize with banana, blueberries, chia seeds, and cinnamon. Mix up and serve.

Cook's Notes:

You can top this with other fruit, 1 to 2 teaspoons low-sugar jam, nuts, etc.

Use no-salt-added cottage cheese if you can find it. I have looked far and wide and have only found it at Safeway (Lucerne(R) brand). I stock up and keep it on hand.

Save quinoa you don't use for more breakfasts, snacks, or salads. Quinoa is so versatile, it is a staple in our house!
