GET SUPER-FAST FIBRE
BERRY QUINOA PORRIDGE Quinoa has a super-high protein content and is full of fibre. It is suitable for people on a gluten-free diet and works well with different milks, so this can be a dairy-free breakfast too. Makes 500ml, keeps 2–3 days. Ingredients 60g quinoa; 280ml milk (coconut, almond, cow’s) ½ cinnamon stick, 1tsp vanilla bean paste or extract, 1tbsp maple syrup, pinch of salt; frozen berries to serve – optional. Method 1. Place the rinsed quinoa in a pan over a low heat and add 200ml of the milk along with the cinnamon stick and the vanilla. 2. Cover with a lid and cook for 8–10 minutes until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Be very careful as it can easily boil over. 3. Add the remaining milk, the maple syrup and salt. Stir gently until porridge has thickened to your liking. 4. Take off the heat and discard cinnamon stick. 5. Pop the porridge into a jar and top with anything you like. If taking to work, you may like to add a handful of frozen berries just before leaving the house as they thaw beautifully when you reheat the porridge.
