Warming Quinoa Muesli

Quinoa has become one of the most popular nutritional superstars of the decade. And with good reason! This small seed has an amazing nutty taste, is incredibly versatile, easy to prepare, high in nutrients and a complete vegetarian protein. 
As people become aware of quinoa, they are surprised to learn it is not a true grain, but a seed. Like other seeds, it is high in protein and fibre for balanced energy and satiety. One cup of quinoa has about as much protein as two deli slices of chicken breast or about 15% protein by weight.
