Protein-packed quinoa makes this version of strawberries and cream healthy (and filling) enough for breakfast.




  • Rinse quinoa. Prepare quinoa according to package directions; drain well and keep warm.

  • Meanwhile in a large saucepan combine the 1 3/4 cups strawberries, the sugar, cardamom, and salt. Heat over medium-low heat just until berries are warm. Stir in the half-and-half; heat through. Stir in the reserved quinoa and the vanilla.

  • Divide quinoa mixture evenly among serving bowls. Top evenly with the 1/4 cup sliced strawberries.
