Quinoa Porridge with Peanut, Banana & Coconut

By Team Studio Kitchen

Healthy, delicious and easy to prepare, this is the perfect start to a chilly morning. I cook this quinoa in regular milk as I love the creaminess and flavour, but swap it for almond milk, soy or whatever you like if dairy is not your thing

I’ve used peanut butter and banana but really you can add what you like to the actual porridge or on top. Try berries, toasted nuts or yoghurt, you can even stir in a spoonful of Acai powder at the end of the cooking of the quinoa for a healthy twist on an acai bowl.

Toasting the quinoa flakes will help to remove some of the bitterness and add a new toasty flavour dimension to the finished dish. Just add quinoa flakes to a dry frying pan and place over a medium heat. Constantly move the flakes in the pan to get even colouring and cook for a couple of minutes to lightly toast. Remove the flakes and allow to cool and toast the coconut flakes the same way and reserve for topping. 

Quinoa available to buy was unheard of only a short time ago but now quinoa products are everywhere. You can buy whole, puffed, precooked and flakes and you probably won’t have to go to a health food store as they’re now in your local supermarket.
