Quinoa Porridge

There’s nothing like a warming bowl of porridge in the morning, but if you find that oats can be a bit bloating or you are seeking a delicious gluten-free 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 persimmon (sharon fruit), which provides so much natural fruity sweetness plus a whole load of nutrients. The flesh has an irresistibly smooth texture and each bite packs so much juicy flavour. What’s not to love?
