  1. Just bought some more quinoa! You surprised me with the blueberries. Love the eggs-in-the-morning suggestion. Yum! I will make this next week. 🙂

    • the blueberries add a NICE texture and surprise burst of tart flavor. sometimes we use blackberries or raspberries as well. we used to put feta in, but i have been “off” cheese for a bit, so this one is all vegan, baby (unless you add egg, of course!)
