Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 1-1/2 cups soy beverage
  • 1/4 cup raisins or dried cranberries
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt (optional)
  • fresh fruit such as berries, diced apple or sliced banana (optional)
  • maple syrup or honey to taste (optional)

Method


  1. Place quinoa, soy beverage, dried fruit, cinnamon, vanilla and salt, if using, in a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover saucepan, reduce heat to medium-low. Cook undisturbed 15 min. Uncover and, still simmering, stir the quinoa mixture occasionally and cook an additional 5 to 10 min., or until quinoa is tender and mixture is a thick, creamy porridge.
  2. Divide porridge between 2 bowls. Top with fresh fruit. Drizzle with maple syrup or honey, to taste.

Tip
Instead of dried cranberries or raisins, try dried blueberries or currants – or use a mix of dried fruits. Or add other toppings such as mango, kiwi, pears, nectarines, plums, toasted almonds, unsweetened coconut flakes or hemp hearts.
