Vegan quinoa protein porridge

Oats are great,  I love oats, but sometimes they just don’t cut it. Especially after a workout when you’re looking for some extra protein, quinoa would be far better. Thus quinoa porridge was born, made with almond milk for added natural protein.

You will need: serves one

  • 1 cup of cooked quinoa (1/3 if uncooked,in which case cook it)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup of almond milk (or other milk if you prefer)
  • a few almonds to scatter on top

What to do:

  1. In a small saucepan combine all the ingredients bar the almonds.
  2. Heat until bubbling.
  3. Turn down the heat and simmer until it begins to thicken (around 8-10 minutes) you can partially cover it and stir every few minutes to quicken the process.
