Spiced Citrus Quinoa Porridge


A fast blog is a good blog when it comes to recipes, right? All you really want to know is what you need and how to make it. Simple. Just like this little belly-warmer…

So let’s go!

  • 1/2 cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 4 cloves
  • 1 orange, rind and flesh
  • 3cm knob ginger, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • almond flakes
  • rice malt syrup/ maple syrup
  • banana – or berries if you prefer (to serve)
  • soy milk (optional)

Bring quinoa to the boil and then add cloves, ginger and orange rind. Simmer until quinoa has absorbed all of the water.

Remove the cloves and orange rind. Dice the orange and stir through the quinoa.

Serve hot topped with cinnamon, almond flakes, banana, and a drizzle of rice malt syrup.


Try this…

Pre-cook the quinoa the night before so that it’s ready for you when you rise, bleary-eyed for that early morning class or off to work.

Play around with substituting part of the water for orange juice.
