Creamy Quinoa Porridge

Creamy Quinoa Porridge, the perfect breakfast for those cold mornings! The first time Meg’s made this Creamy Quinoa Porridge  was when she cooked for 20 yogis in Santa Ynez, California on a yoga retreat. It was one of her first times cooking a completely vegan menu for 3 full days. We had just started our Cleansing with Food workshops in the middle of Autumn, and she wanted to make a warm breakfast porridge one of the mornings. The issue was no oats were allowed on the cleanse, so she had to think of an alternative “grain” to use.

What Meg’s love most about quinoa is how nutritionally dense it is. Quinoa is actually a seed, that is a complete protein packed with vitamins and minerals! It is a great grain or low carbohydrate alternative. Read more about quinoa nutrition facts from Dr. Axe HERE!

You can make this creamy quinoa porridge fresh or ahead of time. This is why I loved making this dish for a large crowd. Using leftover, already cooked quinoa, you can reheat it the next morning. Adding chia seeds for extra fiber, plus these sweet ingredients, you got yourself a deliciously nutritious (and quick) breakfast!

All the yogis loved this recipe so much I had to share. I hope you enjoy it as much as we all do! Keep scrolling for this whole recipe.
