Quinoa Porridge

Are you familiar with Quinoa (keen-wa)?  This tiny little seed is packed with nutrition.  It provides all eight of the essential amino acids, making it an unusually complete protein source among plant foods.  It is gluten-free and easy to digest.  Quinoa has a mild nutty flavor and a fluffy texture.  Cook it like rice and season it, add it to soups and salads, or try this recipe for a hot, nutritious, delightfully delicious breakfast!




1/3 cup quinoa
1/4 cup pecans
2 cups water
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
dash of cinnamon (optional)
2 Tbsp maple syrup


  1. Put quinoa into the saucepan.
  2. Blend nuts with water on high for two minutes. Add nut mixture to the pan with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium low.  Simmer for 45 minutes.

(I discovered this recipe on the pamphlet in a box of Ancient Harvest brand Inca Red quinoa.)
