Quinoa Porridge



Quinoa (pronounced ‘keen-wa’) is a super grain which is a brilliant wheat free alternative. There are several health benefits of Quinoa. Some of these include:

-It’s very high in fibre.
-It’s Gluten Free, so perfect for anyone with Gluten intolerances.
-It’s very high in protein and contains all the essential amino acids that we need.
-It contains iron.

The great thing about it is that there are several ways to cook it. Usually, I have it as a side dish with some protein and vegetables. However, today I tried something different and had it as a porridge.

To make this filling high protein breakfast, you will need:


-1 Cup of Quinoa

-1 1/2 Cups of Coconut Milk

-1 Tablespoon of Honey

-Desired toppings



– Heat a saucepan over a medium heat.

-Throughly rinse your quinoa and then pour it into a pan.

-Pour your milk into the pan and leave it to boil for about 15 to 20 minutes.

– Quinoa should be thick and the grains should be tender.

-If the quinoa is too thick, add a bit more milk or water until you get your desired consistency.

-Pour quinoa into a bowl and then mix in your honey.

-Add your desired toppings.

In this instance, I used Blueberries, Raspberries, Dessicated Coconut, Pumpkin Seeds and Chai Seeds.
