Red Quinoa Peach Porridge

23 10 2013

I’m always on the hunt for new and unusual breakfast ideas because I tend to eat the same things time and time again – boring! I hadn’t thought of quinoa for breakfast before, but I’m glad I stumbled on this recipe! It’s hearty, deliciously easy and very healthy. Quick, give me a spoon 🙂

Red Quinoa Peach Porridge

The following serves 2 (compliments of Food52 and This Girl’s Gotta Eat):

  • 2 peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1 and 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup milk (I recommend unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup red quinoa (make sure you get the pre-rinsed kind to save yourself the hassle)
  • 1/4 cup old fashions rolled oats
  • Ground cinnamon to taste
  • Chopped walnuts to garnish

Place the quinoa, peaches and water in a small saucepan. Cook uncovered for 30 minutes over medium heat.

Add the oatmeal and milk. I also added ground cinnamon to taste. Cook uncovered, until the oats are tender, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Top with chopped walnuts (or any other nut you prefer to give it a little crunch) and enjoy!
