Quinoa porridge is not only delicious and highly nutritious - it is a wonderful alternative for those with a gluten intolerance or sensitivity who can't eat oat porridge. Extremely versatile, quinoa is low in calories and high in protein.
1/4 cup quinoa
1/2 cup almond milk (or milk or your choice)
1/2 teaspoon honey (one teaspoon if you've a sweeter tooth)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Handful of nuts - optional
Add the quinoa to a small pot or saucepan with half a cup of water. Bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer with the lid on.
Slice, mash or chop the banana.
Once the quinoa is cooked (all the water gone - should take ten minutes), add the milk and banana to the pot, replace the lid, turn the heat off and let it stew for a couple of minutes.
Mash the banana in
To serve, drizzle with the honey, sprinkle with cinnamon and top with nuts if you're using them.
