Almond and Plum Quinoa Porridge

Breakfast is such a wonderful meal, and I am particularly partial to big bowls of porridge during colder weather. This grain-free porridge is creamy and warming, and the almond extract gives it a slight marzipan flavour which works really well with the stewed plums.

Serves 1

Ingredients:

60g uncooked quinoa, soaked overnight and rinsed

125ml almond milk (I like Ecomil) or water

1/2tsp almond extract

A helping of my Almond-infused Stewed Plums, to top

1tbsp almond butter, to top

Flaked almonds, to top

Method:

1.) Add the quinoa, almond milk and almond extract to a saucepan and bring to the boil. Then reduce the heat and simmer until the liquid has been absorbed.

2.) If you want to serve the stewed plums hot, start to heat these up gently in a pan as the porridge cooks.

3.) Serve the porridge with the stewed plums, almond butter and flaked almonds. Enjoy!
