Quinoa Porridge

I’m very keen on rice porridge in the morning but I decided to mix it up and try quinoa porridge instead. I have to be honest and say that quinoa flakes smell a bit funny. But the proof of the pudding is in the eating and it tasted pretty good. I think I still prefer rice but quinoa is such a good source of veggie protein, I would make this again.

This makes enough to feed a hungry Army, 4-5 people. You basically want twice as much liquid as dry ingredients so using a cup measure keeps it simple.

I used:
1.5 cups quinoa flakes
1/4 cup linseeds
1/4 cup shelled hemp seeds
Pinch vanilla powder (or a few drops of extract)
Pinch sea salt
4 cardamom pods (take them out before serving)
Good pinch ground nutmeg
Good pinch ground ginger
4 drops stevia (I used orange stevia but plain is good too)
2 cups milk (I used dairy because I was out of plant milk) and 2 cups of water

You could use a combination of rice and quinoa flakes and you could use more milk and less water. This is a very flexible recipe.

I left it overnight in the fridge to soak then it only took a few minutes to cook in the morning.
