Quinoa Porridge

I have all this quinoa because I bought it for this one recipe once upon a time; there is a lot of it because I bought it at Target and it came in a 1 pound bag.  Unfortunately, it turns out my fiancé hates quinoa.  I can’t even trick him into eating it  – I try sneaking it into things and he knows!  Now what?  I hate to throw it away but….

So I started googling different ways to eat quinoa and was intrigued by porridge made of quinoa.  Bonus: The fiancé and I don’t eat the same things for breakfast anyway!

Quinoa Porridge

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 1/2 tsp double strength vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1/2 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • unsweetened shredded coconut for sprinkling

Add quinoa, coconut milk, water, flax, vanilla, cardamom and honey to medium sauce pan.  Bring to boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium.  Boil for 15 minutes stirring occasionally.  Add frozen cherries and boil for 5 additional minutes.  Serve topped with shredded coconut – yum!

makes 4 servings

I put my remaining 3 servings in jars in the refrigerator and intend to eat them cold in the coming mornings.

As a side note, I made the fiancé try this – he still hates quinoa.  Bummer.
