This simple quinoa porridge is ultra healthy and really tasty, full of cinnamon, apples and raisins. While it takes around 20 mins to make (a bit longer than you might usually spend on breakfast in the week), it’s perfect to make into big batches to keep in the fridge – just pop it into the microwave to heat it up. When toast or boring cereal just won’t do, this nutritious meal has that indulgent taste but without the guilt: a perfect start to any day!

Ingredients

  • 400ml milk
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 180g quinoa
  • 2tbsp runny honey
  • 1 apple, chopped roughly
  • 100g raisins

Labelled as a ‘superfood’, quinoa (pronounced ‘keen-wah’) is packed full of protein and fibre, and releases energy slowly, keeping you fuller for longer…perfect for the first meal of the day.

Method

  1. Bring the milk and cinnamon up to the boil in a saucepan then add the quinoa and stir well.
  2. Simmer for around 15 mins with the lid on until most of the milk has been absorbed and the grains have cooked through.
  3. Stir through the honey, apple pieces and raisins, then divide between four bowls and top with the flaked almonds.
  4. Sprinkle with a little brown sugar or drizzle with honey to serve.
