Quick Quinoa Porridge

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups water
  • 30g white quinoa, rinsed well
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 70g apple or pear, peel on, cored and sliced into 1cm slices
  • 20g frozen blueberries

Method

  1. Put quinoa, cinnamon and water into a pan and bring to the boil
  2. Turn down to a simmer and add the fresh fruit, keeping the berries aside
  3. When the grain has absorbed all the water and you see steam tunnels, turn it off and put a lid on the pan
  4. Leave aside for about 20 mins until the grain is soft
  5. Fluff with a fork taking care not to break the fruit
  6. Serve in a bowl topped with the berries and your choice of milk and a spoon of plain yoghurt.

This is great to make if you are heading off for a short run! When the pan is off the heat and the quinoa is softening, head out for your run and look forward to a warm healthy porridge on your return!
