Here's a dairy and wheat free breakfast porridge thick, rich and delish for those cold mornings. ** Can substitute Agave Nectar for brown sugar **

Recipe Ingredients for Quinoa Porridge

1/2 cup quinoa
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1 1/2 cups almond milk
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 tsp sea salt

Recipe Directions for Quinoa Porridge

Heat a saucepan over medium heat and measure in the quinoa. Season with cinnamon and cook until toasted, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes. Pour in the almond milk, water and vanilla and stir in the brown sugar and salt. Bring to a boil, then cook over low heat until the porridge is thick and grains are tender, about 25 minutes. Add more water if needed if the liquid has dried up before it finishes cooking. Stir occasionally, especially at the end, to prevent burning.
