A bodacious healthy breakfast – quinoa and steel cut oats

My go to breakfast has been steel cut oats with fruit and nuts.  I shook it up just a tad, equal portions of steel cut oats and quinoa topped with mango, raw almonds and balsamic reduction.










I love this balsamic reduction and it makes the quinoa/steel cut oats extra yummy.


  • Equipment: Small pot with lid
  • Cook time: 20 minutes
  • Course: Breakfast
  • Cuisine: American
  • Servings: 1
  • Author: Bodacious Grub


  • 1/8 cup steel cut oats
  • 1/8 cup quinoa
  • 3/4 cup of water (to cook the grains)
  • 1/2 cup mango
  • 1/8 cup raw almonds chopped
  • a nice drizzle of balsamic reduction


  • Add the oats and quinoa to the water and bring it to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to low and cover the pan.  Simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Once the grains are cooked, top them with mango, almonds and a good drizzle of the balsamic.

Bodacious breakfast, it’s all about the balsamic and grain combination.

Plus budget conscious, I found the balsamic at Grocery Outlet for $1.99.   Normally it sells for 10.99 a bottle. 

Don’t forget about Grocery Outlet, Bodacious Eating on a Budget.
