Quirky Quinoa Porridge

Hi guys today I am going to share with you a recipe for quinoa porridge. I have been trying to find healthy alternatives to my normal meals. Quinoa is an ancient South American grain and is considered a super-food. It is a complete protein which makes it excellent for vegetarians and vegans. It also has high levels of iron and other vitamins and minerals, which makes it very healthy. It is cooked in a similar way to rice. The good news is that quinoa is delicious and can be used in many ways. One of my favourites is porridge.

Porridge served

This recipe is for a single serve. If you are making it for more than one, just multiply the ingredients by the number of serves you would like.

What you will need:
  • 1/2 a cup of quinoa flakes
  • 1 cup of water
  • Maple syrup or honey, to taste
  • Your choice of dairy free milk alternatives
  • Choice of seasonal berries or other fruits

  1. Measure out 1/2 a cup of quinoa flakes and place them in a small saucepan.
  2. Place 1 cup of water in the saucepan.
  3. Bring the porridge to the boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer for approximately 2 minutes, or until all the liquid is absorbed.
  4. Place porridge in a bowl and add your choice of milk and maple syrup or honey, to taste.
  5. Serve with seasonal berries or fruit.
Note: If you don't have quinoa flakes this recipe will work exactly the same using rice flakes or rolled oats.

I hope you get to try this gluten free, vegan and extremely healthy recipe. What is your favourite healthy food? Comment down below.
