Blueberry Quinoa Parfait

6:10 AM

The basic idea for the quinoa parfait was to layer quinoa with yogurt and berries and after that you could add pretty much anything else that you like. Since I was using blueberries this time I decided to pair them with some toasted pecans and to use vanilla yogurt though I was also contemplating on going with plain yogurt and then topping the whole thing off with maple syrup.

Quinoa used in a breakfast parfait layered with vanilla yogurt, fresh blueberries and toasted pecans.
Servings: makes 4 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

  • 1 cup quinoa, well rinsed

  • 2 cups water

  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt

  • 2 cups blueberries

  • 1/4 cup pecans, toasted and coarsly chopped


  1. Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a medium sized sauce pan, reduce the heat and simmer covered until the water has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender, about 15-20 minutes.

  2. Chill the quinoa in the fridge.

  3. Assemble the parfait by layering the quinoa, yogut, blueberries and pecans
