Spiced Quinoa Porridge with Goji & Pistachios April 27 2014

It's a wintery day in Sydney so I have made spiced quinoa porridge with goji berries & pistachios for breakfast. Nourishing and delicious! Quinoa is gluten free & high in protein and goji berries are the most nutritionally dense fruit on Earth! 


1/3 cup organic quinoa flakes (you can find these in your local health food shop and at some supermarkets)

1 cup milk of your choice (organic full cream milk, almond milk or coconut milk)

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp vanilla powder or extract

pinch of salt

1/4 cup goji berries

1/4 cup raw pistachio nuts

Optional - 1/4 tsp Mesquite Powder (available from health food shops)

Optional - Sweetener of your choice to drizzle over the porridge once cooked - maple sweetener or honey works well


Mix all ingredients together, excluding the sweetener, in a saucepan and bring to the boil over a low heat.

Once the quinoa has thickened and absorbed all the liquid, take off the heat and pop in to a bowl.

Garnish with a sprinkle of extra goji berries and pistachio nuts and sweeten to taste with a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.

Serves 1.
