Recipe Ingredients for Quinoa Porridge

80 g uncooked quinoa
250 g water
125 g skimmed milk
1/4 tsp cinnamon
20 g honey

Recipe Directions for Quinoa Porridge

Add quinoa, water, cinnamon and 1/2 cup of the milk in a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until most of the water has been absorbed. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of milk, walnuts, cranberries and raisins and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes or until it reaches your desired consistency (it will gradually get thicker). Once it reaches the consistency you like, add the honey and the yogurt (yes, yogurt!) and stir to combine. Adding some yogurt might seem odd to some of you, but trust me, it provides a lovely silky consistency.
