While this may be a breakfast bowl, I actually had it for my evening meal. Porridge doesn’t have to be reserved for breakfast only.

Putting that aside, quinoa is usually associated with being a substitute for rice - that too in savory recipes. But it can be used for so much more; Sweet or dessert recipes are entirely possible with quinoa - makes them a little more healthy too.

This “seed” - yes, its not a grain - is also a good alternative for oatmeal, and makes a great gluten free porridge.

Place quinoa in a bowl and rinse under running water for at least 1 minute. This is required to remove the bitter taste.
Heat a small saucepan or pot over medium heat. When hot, add quinoa and toast for 3 minutes, stirring frequently, to dry up water.
When quinoa starts to slightly pop, add water and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to a low simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes until quinoa is fluffy and all the water is absorbed.
Transfer quinoa to a bowl, add remaining ingredients, and stir to combine.
