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.
