Quinoa Porridge

December 19, 2016

 This warming recipe is a great high protein version of your classic oatmeal. It's a superfood breakfast that will jumpstart your morning and keep you full longer- it's packed with complex carbohydrates rich in fiber, B vitamins, magnesium and iron. Quinoa is one of the few grains that is actually a complete protein. It's super versatile and delicious, which makes it a convenient grain to have around the house. 





Prep time:    5 min                      Cook time:   6 min                      Total time:  11 min
