Quinoa is a great gluten free substitute for oats when you want a nice warm porridge on a Winter’s morning.
Although oats are technically not a gluten grain they are oftern avoided in Coeliac and Gluten Intolerant people who may suffer the same symptoms as with gluten on ingesting oats.
1 cup Quinoa flakes
1/2 cup Mixed berries
1 tsp Cinnamon powder
1 tbs Pumpkin seeds
1 tbs Walnuts
1 tbs Sunflower seeds
Honey/Agave nectar (optional)
At breakfast time, cook the quinoa flakes by adding water to a saucepan and cook gently until you have a porridge consistency. Remove from the heat. Add the cinnamon and stir through.
Pour your porridge into a bowl. Add mixed berries and a sprinkle of nuts and seeds.
For a sweet kick, add a drizzle of honey or agave nectar.
