I was actually pretty impressed with this easy breakfast parfait.
We eat a lot of quinoa around here and this seemed like an interesting way to incorporate it into breakfast.
The quinoa is toasted in the oven with a bit of sweetener and olive oil and transformed into a nice, crunchy treat. Add that to some creamy, thick Greek style yogurt and fresh fruit and you have yourself a plethora of texture and flavor.
I toasted the quinoa the night before making it super fast to throw together in the morning.
Try it out for a variation to the usual yogurt and granola parfait.
