1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1-1/2 cups diced watermelon

2. Bring water to a boil.
3. Stir in quinoa, cover and simmer 15 minutes.
4. Allow quinoa to cool
5. In 4-6 parfait glasses (depending on size of glass) layer quinoa, yogurt, blueberries, yogurt, watermelon and yogurt. Repeat layering if desired.
