I was trying to rack my brain to think of anything quick and easy to make for Valentines day.
Red velvet cake is out obviously. I just have no time to make a cake.
Heart shaped…anything pretty much is on the same boat. No time at all.
Seriously, this week has gone by so quickly, and it feels like I didn’t get anything done.
So pretty much my half-ass attempt at making something Valentines day-esque is just topping something that I can make in less than 30 minutes with raspberries. It’s red, so that means it’s a fit candidate for a Valentines day themed recipe. Obviously.
But I’m sure anyone would appreciate this porridge on a cold February 14th morning, or any morning in fact. I would have never thought of having quinoa for breakfast, but there you are.
Actually, that is not true. I have made quinoa pancakes before, and they were one of the most delicious pancakes I have ever made.
So if you’re a busy bee, but are in need of a quick breakfast, I would highly recommend this porridge. It’s quick, easy, and best of all, healthy.
This Raspberry Quinoa Porridge is one of my favourite recipes to make for breakfast. So healthy and easy to make, this is gluten free and can be made vegan.
- 2 cups milk of choice
- 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
- 3 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Bring the milk to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the quinoa and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered until 3/4 of the milk has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.
Stir in the sugar and cinnamon. Cover again and cook until almost all the milk has absorbed, about 8 minutes.
Serve in bowls, and top with fruits of your choice.
