Cinnamon Quinoa Porridge

It’s widely acknowledged that the internet is full of cats. Know what else it’s full of?

People debating whether quinoa is a seed or a grain (you know it’s serious when they start HOLDING DOWN THE CAPS KEY).

grain? seed? delicious oat substitute?

grain? seed? either way it’s still a delicious oat substitute

I don’t have a dog in this fight. Quinoa doesn’t upset my stomach or my digestion so I don’t really care what matter of beast it is.

I like the taste of it, therefore I eat it.

If you’re less lucky, but still want a porridge substitute, might I recommend chia seeds?

Cinnamon Quinoa Porridge (serves 2-3)

  • 1/2 cup quinoa (any colour, I used mixed but whatever you have is fine)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup cream or coconut milk if non-dairy
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  1. Put the quinoa and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes until the water is absorbed.
  2. Stir in the honey and cinnamon. Transfer to a bowl and pour over the milk.
  3. Serve on its own or with fruit.
