Author Notes: Take the chill off of autumn mornings with this creamy, rich, and sweet bowl of quinoa porridge. Nutrition nerds, take note: this dish is rich in fiber and complete protein! —Gena Hamshaw
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 35 min
cup Slivered almonds
cup Dried quinoa
cups Full fat coconut milk, divided
tablespoons Maple syrup
teaspoon Sea salt
Cinnamon stick (or 1 tsp cinnamon)
cup Pitted dates, chopped into small pieces (optional)
- Heat a shallow pan or a dry skillet over medium heat. Toast almonds till they’re golden. Quickly remove from heat and transfer to a cool plate to stop them from burning.
- Rinse quinoa using a sieve until the rinse water runs clear. Bring the quinoa, maple syrup, sea salt, cinnamon, 1 cup coconut milk and 1 cup water to boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. Let simmer until quinoa is fluffy and all liquid has absorbed (about 15-20 minutes). Turn off heat and fluff quinoa gently with a fork. Remove cinnamon stick.
- Quickly, before it gets cold, divide quinoa into four bowls. Top each with about 2 tablespoons of coconut milk, along with 2 tablespoons of toasted almond slivers and a sprinkle of dates, if desired. Serve.
