Quinoa is one of those products you can do all sorts with for breakfast, I love it with berries, but if you love honey too this one is certainly a winner. It is very sweet so idea for those with a sweet tooth! It works well topped with pretty much any fruit to make a very filling alternative to porridge.

Method

1. Heat the milk in a saucepan until not quite boiling, add in the quinoa.

2. Reduce the heat of the hob to low and allow the quinoa to cook and absorb the milk, stir in the milk after about 10 mins so all the flavour to seep into the quinoa. The quinoa is done with the grain has "popped" and appears to look like a circle with a ring around compared to its solid sphere shape when raw, it takes about 15-20 minutes to reach this stage.

3. Pour out the quinoa into a bowl, if you wish you can add a tad more milk to make if you prefer a runnier texture. Top with whatever fruit you desire, we find berries, pomegranate or a mixture of winter fruits all work well.
