They have the toughest job in the world – and while every day should probably be Mother’s Day, we take one special day out of the year to honor and celebrate them.

Along with bouquets of colorful flowers and carefully handmade gifts, what says “Mother’s Day” better than a delicious brunch? Because of its protein content and versatility (it can be baked in a scone, served with eggs, or toasted to make cereal) quinoa may very well be the perfect brunch food. Whether you prefer sweet or savory or something light and fresh, you can find a way to work quinoa onto your plate.
