Maple, Vanilla & Quinoa Porridge

by | Breakfast

This is the perfect way to use up leftover cooked quinoa! It also makes a great gluten-free alternative for those who don’t tolerate oats very well.

We’ve served our quinoa porridge with sliced pear but berries, apple or banana would work well too.

Happy cooking!
