Tired of oatmeal and cereal for breakfast? Try this recipe for an interesting twist on porridge. If you're like me, you always make extra quinoa to have on hand. It's an easy ingredient to add onto any meal, from dinner to a lunch salad. Now it can star on it's own platform.
What You Need
Equal parts of:
non-dairy milk- unsweetened soy milk
I used one cup of each
agave nectar (to taste)-I used three tablespoons
sprinkle of sea salt
What You Do
Heat milk and agave in a medium sized pot on medium-high until simmering. Add in quinoa and cook until most of the liquid is dissolved. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent agave from burning.
Pour into a bowl and place in your slices of bananas, or fresh fruit on hand. Stir in bananas, drizzle with agave, and sprinkle on some cinnamon.
Clean-up Tip: Place hot water and soap immediately in the pot when done to prevent the quinoa and sugar from sticking.
Creative note [10/5/11] Today I added superfruit jam into my leftover porridge from yesterday. It turned the whole bowl a pretty purple and tastes amazing! No fresh fruit? Use Jam!
Simple. Healthy. Delicious
