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!
