  • Fresh Strawberries - 1 pound
  • Quinoa - ½ cup uncooked
  • Water - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 2 tablespoon I used white
  • Parfait Single Serving:
  • Greek yogurt - ½ cup I used honey strawberry
  • Maple syrup/ Honey/ Pancake syrup/corn syrup - 1 tablespoon I used maple syrup
  • Cooked Quinoa – 1/3 cup
  • Roasted strawberries – 1/3 cup roughly chopped
  • Grounded roasted nuts – 3 tablespoon I used roasted Almonds, cashew, pista and pecan


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degree Fahrenheit and line the baking tray with parchment paper. Grease it with cooking spray or oil
  • Spread the strawberries in the baking tray and sprinkle sugar all over the strawberries. Roast the berries for around 20-25 minutes, until the berries are soft and strawberry smells dominate your kitchen. Transfer it to a bowl, and let it cool
  • Meanwhile in a heavy bottomed saucepan on medium heat add quinoa and water; bring to boil. Once the water starts boiling turn down the heat to low, cover and cook for 20 minutes. Remove the lid and fluff the quinoa and let it cool.
  • Layering the parfait:
  • Add maple syrup to 1/3 cup of quinoa; mix well
  • Take a serving glass/dish, add around 1/4 cup of yogurt layer as the first layer. 1/3 cup of quinoa second layer. 2 tablespoon of ground nuts as the third layer. Roasted strawberries as fourth layer. 1/4 cup of yogurt as fifth layer. Roasted strawberries as sixth layer and sprinkle nuts at top

  1. If you are using plain yogurt (curd) use thick yogurt. teaspoon of Sour cream can be added for creaminess
  2. Add some sugar/honey/maple syrup to the plain yogurt for additional sweetness. Yogurt I used contains sugar so I skipped it
  3.  Adjust the sweetness to the quinoa layer according to your sweetness
  4. Fresh strawberry can also be used instead of baking
  5. If you are using frozen strawberries thaw it and add to the Parfait. I have never baked frozen strawberries not sure how it will taste, if toasted
  6.  Any other fruits of your choice can be used
  7.  Use ripe strawberries for better flavour
  8. Cooked flattened rice, cooked semolina, cooked Vermicelli or chia seeds can be used instead of quinoa
