Quinoa porridge sweetened with apple purée and topped with pomegranate seeds for a burst of sweetness and toasted almonds for crunch.

Ingredients

quinoa flakes

35 g, (⅓ cup)

skim milk

¾ cup(s), (185ml)

no added sugar apple puree

1 tbs

pomegranate

¼ medium, (2 tbs) arils

roasted almonds

½ tbs, lightly toasted, chopped

Instructions

  1. Combine quinoa and milk in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until mixture comes to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring, for 3–4 minutes or until porridge is thick. Stir in apple puree.
  2. Serve porridge topped with pomegranate and almonds.

Notes

TIPS: Find no-added-sugar apple puree in the baby aisle of most supermarkets. You can use fresh or frozen raspberries (crushed with a fork) instead of pomegranate. To toast almonds (or any nuts), toss them in a small non-stick frying pan over medium heat until golden. To make your own unsweetened apple puree, simply cut a peeled apple into thin wedges. Cook apple with 1 tablespoon water in a small saucepan over medium heat until very soft. Mash with a fork until almost smooth.
