As fall approaches, shifting from cold cereal breakfasts to hot ones seems logical and feels good. This hearty Quinoa Breakfast Porridge with Hot Blueberry Drizzle is so delish and protein-rich. It will make you smile for the rest of your day.
½ cup Quinoa
1 cup Soy milk
½ cup water
1 star anise (known as aniseed to some!)
3 green cardamom pods
½ tsp cinnamon
1 pinch salt
1 tsp honey
2 tbsp almonds (chopped)
2 tbsp dried apricots
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Rinse the quinoa well (that’s important), get a pot, and add quinoa, soy milk, and water. Bring to a boil and then turn down to a low heat.
½ cup quinoa,½ cup water,1 cup soy milk
Now add the spices: cardamom, anise, cinnamon, sugar, and a pinch of salt.
1 star anise,3 green cardamom pods, ½ tsp cinnamon,1 pinch salt,1 tsp sugar
Cut the almonds and apricots into slices and throw them into the pot as well. Hold back a few of each for garnish.
2 tbsp almonds,2 tbsp apricots, dried
Let everything simmer for about 15 minutes until the quinoa is soft, and the liquid is absorbed.
Meanwhile, grab a pan and throw in the blueberries. Let them simmer until they resemble marmalade. That’ll take about 5 minutes.
Once the quinoa is done, remove the anise star and cardamom pods and toss.
Add the quinoa to a bowl. Pour a little more soy milk over your concoction. Now add the blueberry sauce. Sprinkle a few more almond and apricot slices and perhaps a few coconut flakes to finish.
