Mornings can be very busy and porridge can be the last breakfast of choice. Not anymore with this quick and easy recipe! A simple and warming brekkie is quinoa porridge. Just use a cup of quinoa flakes (you can find this at the Macro section in Woolworths), add 2 cups of liquid (1 cup water and 1 cup of milk of your choice) and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Bring to the boil and simmer for 3-5 minutes. Add 1 Tablespoon of coconut or flaxseed oil, and 1-2 teaspoons of raw honey or maple syrup. This is great on its own or topped with chia seeds, flax seeds or nuts. I chose quinoa flakes here because it cooks really quickly but you can also use leftover brown rice or pre-soaked oats. This little bowl of goodness provides you with a balance of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fat. Quinoa is a complete protein source so try some today!
