Serves: 4 

  • 150g black quinoa
  • 1 pinch salt

  1. Rinse the quinoa in a sieve under the cold tap, then put it into a large saucepan with a pinch of salt and double the volume of water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 15 to 20 minutes, until the water has almost evaporated.
  2. Add the porridge oats and milk. Heat, stirring constantly, until the porridge thickens. Reduce the heat and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring.
  3. Share the porridge between 4 serving bowls and top with the yoghurt and raspberries. Drizzle with a little honey and serve immediately.


Cook’s tips: Quinoa porridge is a great way to start the day, as its slow-burn helps keep you going throughout the morning. Try topping it with different fruits, such as mango, pineapple or blueberries. Or why not try sprinkling a few toasted seeds on top? They add some crunch and flavour, as well as extra nutrients. Pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds or sunflower seeds are good choices – just toast them in a dry frying pan for 1 to 2 minutes, taking care that they don’t burn.
