Easy and delicious

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.

Can use frozen fruit, can be made with pantry items, can use natural sweeteners, cooks quickly
Great recipe and some tweaks

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!

Healthy dessert option

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.

Healthy, delicious, filling, flavorful
great dessert!

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!

low fat, easy, stores well
Yum Yum!

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!

delicious, easy to make, healthy, smells good
