This is an interesting time of year. We straddle crisp, cold winter days with wisps of spring teasers. With all this weather confusion my tastebuds are sure all over the place. One minute I crave hearty rustic soul warming foods. The next I crave lighter salads and sunnier fare.

I came up with this Strawberries and Cream Quinoa Porridge which is a delicate mix of comfort meets light ‘n healthy breakfast. No matter what season your tastebuds or reality is living in, you will leave the table smiling.

This breakfast recipe takes advantage of a few things you might all ready happen on in your fridge. Fresh or frozen strawberries will work out great.

No strawberries? Not a problem. Use another berry or your favorite fruit.

You guys are creative like that. I have no worries you will make somethin’ work here.

Not only can you be versatile with your fruit choice, but you can go vegan or dairy with the whipped cream.

I have many recipes for homemade whipped cream on Family Fresh Cooking. Both traditional and vegan coconut versions. Take your pick ~ both are equally satisfying.

Be sure to have a few extra dollops of whipped cream at the ready too. You might want to add a little more to your porridge.

Quinoa is always a welcomed addition to our sweet and savory meals. This gluten free seed (not grain) is quick cooking and oh so versatile.

It’s mild flavor lends itself to all kinds of recipes.
