Morning Breakfast Quinoa Chili

  December 22, 2015  |    Blog>Recipes

When we headed off to college and began to live on our own, one night we were in the mood for oatmeal and a veggie omelet for dinner, and so we had it. We felt like we were breaking all of our Mom’s rules since she would only serve a meal like this at breakfast. Interestingly, now as dietitians, we say, a healthy meal is a healthy meal, no matter what time of day! 🙂  So when we made this quinoa chili, it was warm, satisfying and just the perfect kind of meal you’d want to start your day with, even though you may think of it as lunch or dinner!
