Tropical Sunshine Quinoa Cereal Recipe


posted by on Cooked Recipes


This quinoa cereal recipe makes a great breakfast and is a delicious high protein comfort food. The quinoa is cooked in cinnamon, vanilla and orange juice to infuse the quinoa with a sweet rich and delicious flavor. The mango and goji berries are mixed in after the quinoa is cooked, to keep their vital nutrients and enzymes intact. The warm quinoa softens the goji berries and gives this filling, but not heavy, dish a great texture, a wonderful tropical flavor and loads of nutrition.

    My daughter just made this recipe but the quinoa did not really cook and now we are wondering if it’s because of the orange juice? We cook quinoa all the time and we usually don’t have a problem with it. That’s why we were wondering if it could be the orange juice?

    • Hi Christine, that’s interesting, but I don;t think it would be the orange juice. I used fresh squeezed juice, squeezed it just before cooking the quinoa in it. I actually only made it the one time.. just thought it up and made it. I did notice that the quinoa wasn’t quite as fluffy as with water, but still was very close. That was very minor though. It was well cooked and I found it delicious all together.
      I know it’s disappointing when a recipe doesn’t turn out, but this one did for me and was exactly as shown above. If she used a pasteurized oj (from a box) maybe that should be cut in half with water. I didn’t experiment with that, and perhaps it’s thicker. Just an idea. Good luck if you are trying it again. ..and if so, would love to hear results.

      ps. Aside from this recipe, I also have an apple cinnamon quinoa porridge recipe that has quinoa cooked just in water and then added ingredients. I also loved this one!
