Recipe: Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Porridge

From Leah Rodrigues at Foodista
Serves 4


  • 1 cup rinsed quinoa
  • 3 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk, divided (or other non-dairy milk such as cashew or coconut milk)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 apples, sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds (optional)


  1.  Heat a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Add quinoa, 1 1/2 cups almond milk, water, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, covered, until the quinoa has absorbed the liquid, about 15 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and set aside to cool for 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Fluff quinoa with a fork. To serve, top a 1/2 cup quinoa with 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 sliced apple, 2 tablespoons of toasted almonds and 1/2 tablespoon of chia seeds.
