Quinoa and Brown Rice Porridge

Serves 4
by Tenina Holder

More filling than oats, more protein than steak, and more delicious than toast. Work on adding any fresh or frozen fruit of choice, a variety of nuts or seeds, Crio Bru granules straight from the pack, or even a Fruit Compote.

This recipe originally appeared in my ebook 'What's for Breakfast?' which if you find yourself or the kids asking that question often, you should really go get.

In the meantime, try this on for size through the cooler months. I think you'll enjoy it.

Need

  • 75 g quinoa, rinsed
  • 75 g brown rice, rinsed
  • 300 g water
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • Pinch pink salt flakes
  • 120 g milk of choice (nut, soy, rice, dairy)
  • Ground cinnamon, pure maple syrup or honey, pistachios and chopped dried apricots to serve
  • Yoghurt to serve

Do

1  

Place quinoa and rice into enough water to cover and soak over night.

2  

Drain. Place quinoa, rice, water, vanilla and salt into TM bowl and cook 20 min/100°C/Reverse/speed 1.

3  

Add milk and cook a further 8 min/90°C/Reverse/speed 1. (It may bubble up, so stay close.)

4  

Allow to rest in TM bowl for around 10 minutes until liquid has been absorbed.

5  

Drizzle with pure maple syrup or honey, serve with pistachios and apricots and a dollop of yoghurt or crème fraiche. Add fresh fruit of choice...You will be full all day....not kidding!
