I was watching an old episode of The Kitchen on Food Network a few weeks ago and they had a segment where the chefs talked about foods they were over (or tired of), and foods they still couldn’t get enough of.
And that got me thinking about quinoa. It seems to be all the rage still, even though it first became most popular (at least in my mind) several years ago.
So tell me, are you over quinoa, or are you still going strong with this grain?
And after making this Raspberry Chia Jam and wanting to add it to just about everything, I decided it would make the perfect addition to this Raspberry Jam Quinoa Parfait.

This parfait combines all of my current obsessions: vanilla Greek yogurt (I practically eat it every day), Raspberry Chia Jam (please tell me you’re going to make this soon?), and quinoa. And with just three ingredients (three!), you can have this dish ready in just minutes.
The raspberry jam gives this dish a hint of sweetness and a pretty pop of color, while the creamy Greek yogurt and hearty quinoa add the perfect texture (and taste).
I like to prepare a few of these Raspberry Jam Quinoa Parfaits on Sunday and then have them ready to devour for breakfast or an afternoon snack throughout the week. It’s full of protein, nutrients, and has the perfect amount of flavor to satisfy my sweet tooth.
