Quinoa Porridge


There’s nothing like a warming bowl of porridge in the morning, but if you find that oats don’t sit well or you are seeking a delicious alternative, fear not – quinoa porridge is here! 

Quinoa is a fantastic grain to incorporate into your breakfast since it’s packed full of protein, which keep you satisfied and energised throughout the day. I love how the quinoa soaks up the coconut milk which gives the creamiest texture, but my recipe works just as well with almond milk, soya milk or whatever your preference might be.

I love topping my quinoa porridge with fresh fruit, cinnamon and nut butter!
