Quinoa is a complete protein with a full amino-acid profile, which means your body can utilise it really well. This porridge is perfect for a cold morning – comforting, warm and tasty, and it will fill you up and keep you going for hours.

  • Yield: 2 Servings


  • ¼ cup (50 g) quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • ¼ cup (25 g) rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and grated
  • ¼ cup (40 g) raisins
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • ½ cup (125 ml) cashew milk or coconut milk
To serve (optional)
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • Handful of raisins
  • Maple syrup
  • Coconut milk
  • Nuts, seeds, etc.
How to Make It
  1. Add the quinoa and oats to a small pan along with the cinnamon. Pour in 125 ml (½ cup) water and bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in the grated apple, raisins and ground flaxseed, then pour in the milk, stir and leave to simmer for another 10 minutes.
  3. Serve the porridge immediately, but go nuts and add all the goodness you like with one of the extra ingredients. I love this with a little dash of coconut milk and maple syrup! Delicious.
