Quinoa Porridge

This is a great way to use up leftover quinoa. If you have some leftover but don’t need breakfasts, you can freeze it and take it out the night before; if it’s not fully thawed, making the porridge will thaw it. It’s also a good way to use up apples that are starting to get soft.

Quinoa is rich in protein and contains no gluten, and it makes a good substitute for oatmeal if you cannot have it. It’s a good first grain for babies, so you could give this to an older baby or toddler.

2 cups cooked quinoa
1 cup non-dairy milk of your choice
1 chopped apple
1/4 cup raisins
1-2 tsp cinnamon

Heat everything in a pot over medium-low heat until warm, apples are softened, and most of the milk is absorbed.
