  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2 people 1x


  • 40 g  pre-soaked quinoa
  • 150 ml water
  • 50 ml almond mylk
  • 30 g walnuts
  • 75 g berries (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  1. Rinse quinoa
  2. Bring water to a boil
  3. Add quinoa and bring back to a boil, cover, and reduce heat
  4. Cook for 10 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed
  5. Stir in the almond mylk over a low heat to heat the mylk a little
  6. Pour into serving bowl and top with cinnamon, walnuts and berries


  • I use all varieties of quinoa including tri-colour quinoa
  • Blueberries, strawberries or raspberries are great, however, any berries or raisins can be used, I enjoy having fruit for my breakfast & as quinoa is technically a seed with all the essential amino acids this is a highly nutritious meal
  • I also like my Quinoa Porridge with apples that have been cooked down with a little water & cinnamon
  • Walnuts I eat for brain health but any nuts or seeds would work for good fats, protein & texture
  • Instead of almond mylk use alternative nut mylk, rice mylk, oat mylk
  • Quinoa should be soaked for ideally 12 hours or overnight in twice their amount of water to remove phytic acid making them easier to digest and also reduces cooking time
