Delicious Antidote to rich holiday foods - Quinoa Porridge

Lots of sweet, rich foods are around, especially this time of year. This Quinoa Porridge makes a tasty, healthy breakfast treat. See if you don't agree

warm healthy foodQuinoa Porridge

1/2 cup quinoa

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 3/4 cups almond milk

1/2 water

1 pinch salt (optional)

1/3 cup dried blueberries

Rinse the quinoa in a sieve or in repeated washings in a pan until the water is clear (otherwise there is a slight bitter taste).

Mix quinoa, cinnamon, almond milk, water and salt in saucepan.  Cover, bring to boil, then cook over low heat, covered, until porridge is thick and grains are tender, about 25 minutes.  Add more water if needed. 

Stir occasionally, especially near the end to prevent sticking and burning.  Stir in dried blueberries. Add 1 tsp. of sweetener if desired.

Thanks, Jane N., for sharing this with us.

Hi Lottie,  Well, as I sit here eating my lunch and reading your recipe it seems like something I wuill try.  BTW, my lunch today is oatmeal with a bananna, cinnamin, raisons and lowfat milk !  Pretty close to what you suggest !  Have a terrific Holiday Season !

Quinoa is a great alternative to oatmeal and it is under-appreciated.  Great idea!  Merry Christmas!
