This is a very easy recipe to prepare. I used frozen sliced rhubarb and fresh organic strawberries. I replaced the 1/2 cup of white sugar with 1/4 cup real maple syrup. I also sweetened the yogurt with maple syrup and added a dash of cinnamon.

If you soak the quinoa until it sprouts it aids in digestion and cooks super quick. I too halved the sugar and replaced it with maple syrup and did the same for the yogurt. In addition to the lemon juice I also added some zest...why not?! But the general rhubarbs strawberry combo would make an excellent compote for ice cream, atop shortcake or even waffles! Wicked easy, too! Enjoy!
I have rhubarb growing in my garden. An old variety that came with the 200+ year old farmhouse/property we live on. I've been making rhubarb recipes for years, and this is probably one of the best.
Great infusion of flavors: strawberries, rhubarb and cinnamon. The yogart on top gave it a creamy, but not too sweet tangy twist. Again, another interesting flavor twist.
Deviation of recipe: I didn't have a lemon so I gave it a squirt of bottled lemon juice. I also swapped the sugar in the yogurt with maple syrup giving it a nice "Vermont" twist.
i didn't have rhubarb so i used raspberries. it was delicious, but definitely on the sweet side. i will halve the sugar next time. i pureed the end result so that the texture will be uniform. you can still get the crunch of the quinoa, but the berries weren't obvious. my toddler loved it!
I made this for the first time today and it was DELICIOUS! And while it was cooking it made the whole house smell good. Only thing I changed is replaced half the sugar (and the tbsp) with Stevia in the Raw. Still very sweet, and I think next time I will replace all of the sugar with it. So yeah, def makin this again!
