  • Spices - I love to use cinnamon. You can also add a pinch of nutmeg, star anise or any flavour you desire
  • Fruit - use your preferred dried or fresh fruit or berries. Ensure they are chopped up into small pieces.
  • Nuts & seeds - add your preferences, I like to add tiger nuts, pepitas, sunflower seeds, nigella seeds and so on.
  • Flavouring - add a small amount of vanilla
  • Savoury - quinoa porridge can also be made into a savoury dish, think of your loved flavours, lend flavours from this barley porridge
💭Pro Tips
  • Liquid to quinoa flakes ratio is 3:1
  • As the quinoa flakes are very fine, this vegan porridge cooks very quickly. Be sure to constantly stir and as soon as it thickens, turn off the heat.
  • Dried berries & raisins (and similar) will swell when placed into the porridge.
