It’s just about time for another adventure! I’ve gone and bought overalls for lavender fields and goddess-y sundresses for ritzy beaches, because this lady is headed to the south of France! My sister, a Hawaiian sun princess, flew half way across the world and we’re going to reunite with the whole family in Germany (which will likely just involve me cuddling Louie nonstop), before hopping a train down south. The tulip-man is going to be pretty jealo of my Pokemon collection when I get home.

And as a breakfast fanatic, I don’t think any great adventure can begin without a good breakfast. So today we’re cooking up a breakfast that’s packed with healthy whole grains, peaches, and strawberries…the Summer Fruit Quinoa Breakfast Bake!

Do you remember the Berry Bulgur Breakfast Bake from a few months ago? This quinoa breakfast bake is a bit like that, but with, summer fruits, quinoa instead of bulgur, and an insy bit less hands-on work. But the concept is still the same. Throw a bunch of healthy ingredients in a dish, bake for an hour, boom breakfast.

  1. Thats looks like an amazing breakfast casserole. Love all the fruit and the addition of quinoa. This would be a nice addition to a brunch menu.

  2. Lavender fields and beaches in the south of France!!?? I’m totally jelly. I’ve gone to Paris twice but the countryside is on my wish list.. Have an incredible time!! Also this breakfast looks delish!

  3. This sounds so good! A beautiful combo of flavors and colors

  4. Have fun in France! (Though I’m sure you will.) And that breakfast bake looks so tasty and easy. Fruit and grains are a great way to start the day.

  5. I’m having guests this weekend, and I’ve just found the answer to what to serve them for breakfast — thanks!

    This sounds wonderful. My children are vegan….so I could use almond milk but wondering if a couple teaspoons of flax seeds would substitute for the eggs. Any other suggestions? Thanks

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Mary, I haven’t actually tried it like this before, so I’m not entirely sure how the flax eggs would work in this case. My guess is that the eggs don’t play a huge role, and leaving them out may just cause the bake to turn out a bit less cakey and more free form. And the almond milk shouldn’t be a problem at all! 😀
