Quinoa Porridge

I made Quinoa porridge this morning. I prefer Oatmeal, but this was a nice break from the usual and super filling. My one year old loved it, but the three year old did not. He ended up having what I’m telling him is an “egg bake”, but it’s really mostly zucchini. I’ll post that recipe later. Her is the recipe for the porridge as found in the January/February 2013 issue of Whole Living.

  • 1/2 cp rinsed Quinoa
  • 3/4 cp Almond Milk
  • 1/2 cp water
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp coarse salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom

Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until liquid is absorbed, about 15 min. Remove from heat and let rest 5 min, then fluff with a fork. Serving suggestions: for each serving, top 1/2 cup quinoa with 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 sliced pear, and 2 Tbsp toasted sliced almonds.
