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