Quinoa Porridge Benefits and Recipe!

We view porridge as a staple breakfast meal in cold weather and recommend that you use quinoa instead of oats!

The Benefits of quinoa include:

  • One of the most protein-rich foods we can eat containing all nine essential amino acids.
  • Contains almost twice as much fibre as most other grains.
  • Contains Iron.
  • Contains lysine. Lysine is mainly essential for tissue growth and repair.
  • Rich in magnesium.
  • High in Riboflavin (B2). B2 improves energy metabolism within brain and muscle cells and is known to help create proper energy production in cells.
  • Has a high content of manganese.

Ingredients
  • ½ cup quinoa
  • 1 ½ cups water or almond milk
  • ¼ cup organic coconut cream (optional, but so yummy)
  • 1 tsp. shredded coconut
  • 1 chopped date (optional)
  • ½ chopped banana or pear
  • Handful of chopped walnuts/almonds
  • Big shake of cinnamon
 
Instructions
  1. Boil quinoa in a saucepan of water for about 10 minutes – you will see the grain start to open. Most of the water evaporates so you don’t need to drain it.
  2. While in the saucepan, add the coconut cream, date, banana and cinnamon and stir.
  3. Transfer the porridge into a bowl.
  4. Get creative with toppings! Try Greek or coconut yoghurt, figs, cinnamon, homemade granola, berries, more shredded coconut – so many options.
