Mexican quinoa breakfast bowl for breakfast

This healthy and nutritious Mexican-style breakfast will energize you all day. Boiled red quinoa is served with typical Mexican cuisine toppings: yogurt sauce, black beans, avocado slices, radishes, fresh cilantro and pumpkin seeds. Red quinoa keeps its shape better when cooked and looks more appetizing, and it is also rich in antioxidants and protein. To make breakfast in minutes, boil the quinoa the night before, and just microwave in the morning. Also use canned black beans and purchased salsa.
