  • Summary

    Creamy quinoa porridge with flaxseed is my current cool weather breakfast addiction. Using super soft quinoa flakes, this porridge cooks in a matter of minutes and is so deliciously thick. I also add a spoonful of ground flaxseed for a boost of healthy fats, protein and fibre. Gluten free and dairy free.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup quinoa flakes
    • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
    • 1 pinch cinnamon
    • 1/2 cup coconut milk ((carton, not canned) or any other milk of choice)
    • 3/4 cup water
    • extra milk (or water) (to thin out porridge as desired)
    • maple syrup (to serve)
    • toppings (to serve)
