I love this recipe! Instead of regular oatmeal, I decided to make a red quinoa porridge. It was very delicious, full of flavor and texture. The great thing about this for breakfast, is that you are eating a complete protein, so it is an excellent alternative to having meat or eggs for breakfast. I wonderful choice when you are making changes to eat clean. Also it’s gluten free.
I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I did.
Chai Red Quinoa Porridge
1 cup red quinoa
1 1/2 cups almond milk
2 tsp ginger powder
1 tsp cardamom
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
Grated ginger, walnuts, almond milk, maple syrup or honey ( Optional Toppings)
Wash quinoa in several changes of water in a bowl, rubbing grains and letting them settle before pouring off water (if quinoa does not settle, drain in a large fine-mesh sieve after each rinse), until water is clear.
Drain washed quinoa well in a large fine-mesh sieve.
Combine all ingredients in a heavy medium saucepan and bring to a boil, covered. Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, until milk is absorbed and quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes.
Remove pan from heat and let stand, covered, 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and keep covered to keep warm.
Divide quinoa among bowls and add grated ginger.
Add walnuts, extra almond milk, maple syrup or honey. ( All optional) But yummy!
One more thing. Set the Table with Love.
