Which means that things like oatmeal don’t often hit our table because oatmeal, for some reason, is normally served with sweets like maple syrup, brown sugar, honey, and fruit. Of course, we like to challenge “normal” every once in a while, and did oatmeal in a lot of savory preparations during our Oatmeal Project.
So now that we’re into our 30 Days of Quinoa, we’re doing the same thing of challenging what we “normally” think of, but doing the opposite, taking a savory food and doing it sweetly for breakfast.
Does this make sense? Are you understanding? Are we overexplaining? Should we just take our bowl of red quinoa with sliced bananas, fresh blueberries and honey over to the corner and just enjoy our first quiet-ish weekend in…years?
Red Quinoa with Bananas and Blueberries
Really? Did you really think we would post a recipe for a bowl of cooked quinoa with fresh fruit and honey?
We wouldn’t do that, but if you’ve never tried quinoa like this, we highly encourage you to try it. It’s a little weird at first, especially with the slightly harder, slightly “crunchier” red (or black) quinoa, but it’s not like we’re suggesting you make nachos out of a bowl of oatmeal.
