What's great about it

When I need something sustaining and warming for breakfast, I make myself this awesome porridge which provides instant nourishment. The addition of apple and cinnamon makes this porridge taste just like apple strudel. YUM.

Ingredients

Serves 2

1 cup (milk) your choice of seed, dairy, soy or almond milk

1 cup water

1/2 cup quinoa

2 apples, chopped or grated with skin

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon ground linseed (flaxseed) or LSA (linseed, sunflower seed, almonds)

Method

 

  1. Rinse quinoa under cold running water.
  2. Combine with the water in a pot and bring to the boil.
  3. Reduce the heat - cover and cook for 10 minutes until soft.
  4. Add milk, apple, cinnamon, seeds and vanilla.
  5. Cook for 5 minutes until creamy - add more milk if needed for a creamier texture.
  6. Spoon into serving bowls and enjoy.

 

Notes and Inspiration

To cook the quinoa, add one part of the seed to two parts water in a saucepan. After the mixture is brought to a boil, reduce the heat to simmer and cover - just like you would rice. It takes about 15 minutes to cook and you will notice that the seeds have become translucent. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before enjoying.

Store quinoa in an airtight container. Cooked quinoa seeds are fluffy with a delicate nutty flavour.
