Quinoa Porridge

on November 12, 2011

This is one of the healthiest breakfasts you can eat and it happens to be delicious too. We like to use almond milk, but you can use whichever you like best 😀

1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
1 cup water
1/2 tsp cinnamonpinch of coarse salt
1/2 cup low-fat milk or unsweetened soy milk
1 small apple, diced
1/2 cup blueberries or sliced strawberries
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

Add quinoa, water, cinnamon and salt to a small pot and bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until most of the water has been absorbed. Add milk and simmer uncovered for an additional 10 minutes. Stir in apple, berries and nuts. Let sit, covered for 10 minutes before serving. The porridge will thicken during this time. Drizzle with maple syrup before serving if desired.
