Pumpkin Breakfast Quinoa

I promised this recipe a long time ago, and here it finally is.

This is a great week day breakfast when you prepare it ahead of time.  Split the quinoa between pint size jars and put them in the fridge for a grab and go breakfast.  This is chock full of protein and while I'm usually hungry again by 10 AM, this kept me full long past lunchtime.
