Berry Quinoa Porridge
Berry Quinoa Porridge


  • 1/3 cup quinoa
  • 1 tblsp ground flaxseeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup soy, almond or coconut milk
  • handful berries (choose from blueberry, boysenberry, cranberry, raspberry, strawberry)
  • handful chopped walnuts
  • dollop of natural organic greek yoghurt or coconut yoghurt



Rinse your quinoa (or buy it pre-washed from the bulk section at your local health food store). This gets rid of saponins that make it slightly bitter and hard to digest. The most effective way is to put it in a pot with lots of water and swish it around with your hand until the water goes cloudy. Drain through a sieve and repeat once more.

Add double as much water as quinoa

Boil gently for 10-15 minutes until all the water has been absorbed and quinoa is soft

Add cinnamon, almond or coconut milk and warm through

Turn off the heat and stir through ground flaxseeds

Top with berries, walnuts and yoghurt



You can cook a bigger batch of quinoa and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze and thaw as needed. Then you just need to follow the last 3 steps for a quick breakfast.
