Apple Pie Quinoa Porridge!

by - September 24, 2017

This is pretty much fall in a bowl. Warming and flavourful and the perfect start to your day. You can choose to use quinoa flakes, regular whole quinoa or even oats for this recipe. 

1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup liquid (I use half almond milk and half water)
1 tsp vanilla powder or extract
1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)

1 red apple
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp maple syrup
Water to cover the bottom of your pot

Start by mixing together the porridge ingredients in a pot and put that on the hob on medium-high heat. The cooking process is pretty similar to cooking regular quinoa, so just follow the instruction on the package for cooking times. 
While the porridge is cooking, chop the apples into bite sized pieces and add those to another pot with cinnamon, nutmeg and maple syrup. Cover the bottom of the pot with water and add to the hob on medium-high heat. Keep an eye on both pots to make sure they don't burn, but other than that you can't really go wrong with the cooking of these. 
Once the porridge is done, add it to a bowl and top it with the apples (don't worry if there's a bit of liquid left in the pot, it'll mix nicely with the porridge). Eat it like that or top with some cacao nibs, goji berries and hemp seeds.
