Breakfast Idea

Quinoa Porridge

This recipe provides 4 servings.


1) 1 cup uncooked quinoa
2) 2 cups water
3) 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
4) 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
5) 1 cup low-fat milk or unsweetened
6) 2 apple, diced
7) 1 cup blueberries or sliced strawberries
8) 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Agave syrup (optional)


 Add quinoa, water, Cinnamon and salt to small pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 mins or until most of water has been absorbed. Add milk and simmer uncovered for an additional 10 mins. Stir in apple, berries and nuts. Cover and let sit for 10 mins before serving. Porridge will thicken during this time. If desired, drizzle with agave syrup before serving. This is a great alternative to oatmeal for breakfast.
