Sweet Quinoa Porridge

A nice warm way to start the day! This dish is a high protein, gluten free alternative to oats.

Ingredients

  • Porridge:
  • 1/4 Cup Quinoa Flakes
  • 1 Cup Milk (Rice, Almond or Soy - whatever tickles your fancy)
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp Raw Sugar or Coconut Palm Sugar*
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Pink Salt
Toppings:
  • (feel free to make up your own combination)
  • 4 Almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Sultanas
  • 1/4 Apple, diced or grated
  • 1 Strawberry, sliced
  • A pinch or two of Dessicated Coconut
  • A pinch or two of Cinnamon

Directions

  1. Add all porridge ingredients to a small saucepan on low heat.
  2. Once it starts to bubble, stir constantly for about 90 seconds, until your quinoa is cooked. Don't worry if it seems a little watery, it'll thicken rather quickly both in the pot and in your bowl.
  3. Pour into a bowl, add toppings and eat immediately! I love this just the way it is, but if you have a sweet tooth, feel free to add a drizzle of agave or maple syrup.
  4. TIP
    • If you're tight on time, you can microwave the porridge ingredients for 2:00-2:30 on high, then add toppings.
