Is the name a bit clunky? It is, isn’t it? I originally called this (the equally-clunky) Baked Whole Grain Pumpkin Oatmeal – and then I realized I hadn’t included oats. D’oh! The best I could come up with was “cereal,” though that conjures up cold bowls of Cheerios or Wheaties. Anyway, it’s breakfast, it’s baked, it has pumpkin, it’s healthy, and it’s good.

This sounds sooo good! I’m now kicking myself that I just cooked a batch of quinoa in veggie broth instead of water. Hmmm….maybe the other ingredients would cover that up?? Either way I hope to try this soon!
This sounds so delicious and warming! It would be a great breakfast option for this frigid weather.
With a dish this good, the name doesn’t even matter!! You could call it “bowl of mushed deliciousness.”
I knew I should’ve asked you ;-)!
This looks so warming and wonderful! I love a good dose of pumpkin with breakfast 🙂
The good part of cold weather and snow…live it
Mmm it may be heating up here, but this hot cereal looks too good to resist 😀

Love it. This sounds divine. Nothing like getting some vegetables into breakfast 🙂
Looks so warm and comforting Annie! I have never tried quinoa or brown rice in a breakfast type of recipe or in desserts…I’m real finicky like that, but this sure sounds delicious, especially with all of my favorite spices in it!
I made your lovely breakfast! I loved every spoonful too!
Divine & very energizing too! x
Ah, Sophie. You are too kind!
