Young's loves to use quinoa in dishes because it is a seed-grain that carries the most protein out of any other cereal grain, has balanced amino acids and is an excellent source of magnesium, iron and potassium. Quinoa is often used in savory dishes in place of rice or couscous, but in this recipe we let quinoa sing a sweeter song. This delicious superfood will supercharge your mornings and make them all the more healthy!
