Quinoa-Almond-Porridge

We have been blessed with an exceptionally warm October. Beautiful Indian Summer! But now it looks like it is starting to stay on the colder side. I do not enjoy the colder temperatures and often need something to warm myself up from the inside. What better way of doing just so on a chilly morning, is to enjoy a bowl of warm Porridge served with Blackberry Sauce. Usually I would use Oats but I had some Quinoa flakes left and I really like Almonds or any Nuts, so I mixed those together and-I have to say-I love this Porridge!

Porridge

  • 1cup       Quinoa flakes
  • 1/2cup   Almonds, ground
  • 1cup       Water
  • 1cup       Almondmilk, unsweetened
  • 1 pinch  Sea Salt
  • 3tbsp     Maple Syrup
  •                 Cinnamon

Blackberry Sauce

  • 2cups    Blackberries, frozen
  • 2tbsp     Water
  • 2tbsp     Maple Syrup

In a medium Saucepan mix up Water, Almondmilk, Quinoa, Almonds, Sea Salt and Maple Syrup. Bring to a boil, stir and let Porridge simmer on low heat for about 10 Minutes while stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in a sprinkle of Cinnamon.

In a small Saucepan bring Blackberries, Water and Maple Syrup to a boil, stir. Remove from heat.

Divide Porridge into 3 small bowls and serve with Blackberry Sauce.

I find Porridge very filling, therefore the small serving size. You can always double the ingredients. Enjoy!

  1. I’m obsessed with blackberry syrup at the moment. It goes in everything. I’ve never made porridge with the quinoa flakes before. What is the difference to just using quinoa? It there much besides texture?
