I love a good bowl of warming porridge in the morning. I like to make it the night before so I can just reheat it before I rush out of the door. You can also prep a few bowls for the week ahead.
Quinoa is an awesome grain to have for breaky as it is loaded with protein. Protein will keep you full, energised and satisfied throughout the day. I love how the quinoa soaks up the coconut milk which makes a nice creamy texture. If you are not a fan of coconut milk, then you can try almond, rice or oat milk.
I have topped this with raspberries, my favourite fruit, I like to buy frozen berries and defrost them.
Right my mouth is watering, let’s get to it…
makes 2 bowls of porridge
Cut the vanilla pod in half and scrape out the vanilla and grate the apple. Rinse the quinoa and transfer to a pot, pour in 350ml of coconut milk, apple and honey. Bring the pot to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes.
Take the lid off your pot and add in the rest of the milk, cinnamon and vanilla. Cook for another 4 minutes then take it off the heat, throw in the chia seeds and stir well.
Taste and see if you need more honey.
Transfer to a bowl and top with berries.
