Nutritional values

Quinoa is the only plant protein that is a complete protein, making it a great way for vegans and vegetarians to still get a good serving of protein without eating meat. The milk in this recipe also provides a lot of calcium and healthy fats. 

To make this dish vegan, replace the milk with a plant based milk and the butter with coconut oil or plant based butter.

Meanwhile, pick through the berries. Rinse as needed and pat dry. Divide the quinoa cereal among four serving dishes and season with honey to taste. Sprinkle with the berries before serving.
