    Easy to make but terribly bland and high in calories. To be fair I'm sure that part of the taste is altered by using regular milk as I'm allergic to almond milk...but the cinnamon and vanilla are lost  -  02 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was looking for new healthy breakfast ideas that actually taste good AND fill me up, and this is it! Really nice recipe and i like it more than porridge  -  29 Nov 2016  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Quite delicious and perfect for those cool mornings. Instead of using whole vanilla beans, I used a tsp of vanilla bean paste. Also, if using red and/or black quinoa, expect cooking time to be a bit more than written and possibly require more liquid because of this. Refrigerate any leftovers for a nice afternoon snack! Thank you for the recipe.  -  10 Nov 2016  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
