Quinoa Flakes Porridge With Dry Fruit & Nuts

Written By Srimathi Mani on Sunday, October 10, 2010 | 12:12 PM

Quinoa is a grain that is commonly used in my household. It sometimes replaces rice and I have developed the taste for it. In August I happened to visit People's Organic Co-op located in Ocean beach, San Diego and I was so impressed with the store. It carries a lot of organic produce and regular grocery. This place has organic beans, lentils, grains etc and at reasonable prices. I bought some quinoa flakes and made porridge with it and I loved it. I really started to miss it when I was all done with the flakes. Yesterday, I got some from the store and I made porridge with it. It is so filling but light and is a perfect breakfast food. If you happen to find quinoa flakes in your local grocery store you can give this porridge a try.

Quinoa flakes - 1/3 cup ( it expands to 1 cup)

  17. Just tried this recipe. Not criticising the blogger, but quinoa flake porridge tastes like wallpaper paste. I had to put SOOO MUUCH SUGAR in it to make it edible! Back to oats for me.

  18. Hi Rob, I know quinoa is an acquired taste. My husband cannot stand it, I am so sorry that you did not find it edible. It does have a strong nutty flavor and smell. As for me, I like stuff with less sugar.

  19. I love quinoa and have wanted to try porridge with it for a wihle cos I'm gluten free and it's safer for me. I've just made it and it smells so much like dinner. I can't have sugar and don't have any stevia so i've added some cinnamon and hopefully it will do the trick. Next time I will not use water but go straight for the milk.
