Try these delicious quinoa porridge recipes to get you going in the morning!
Quinoa is a healthy, protein-rich vegan food that works well as an ingredient in salads as a gluten-free substitute for couscous and – Yes! – can work well as a morning porridge too. It takes on the flavour of the ingredients it’s cooked, but, because it’s fairly neutral in flavour, it can be used in a multitude of ways.
