Recipe by Craft & Muse

This creamy, probiotic and protein-rich porridge provides a great start to your and your family’s day. Top it with juicy macerated strawberries, as we’ve done here, or substitute any other fruit when berries are not in season.

Serves 4 portions

Ingredients

  • 1 cup GoGo Quinoa Royal Quinoa
  • 1 ½ cups filtered water
  • ½ cup almond milk, original or vanilla, plus more for serving
  • 1 tablespoon organic cane sugar or maple syrup
  • ½ cup yogurt (plant-based or dairy yogurt both work)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla paste or vanilla powder
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice, optional
  • large coconut flakes, optional
  • 1/2 cup of fresh strawberries

Instructions

  1. Cook quinoa following the package’s instructions.
  2. While the quinoa is cooking, prepare the strawberries. Wash and chop the berries into a small bowl, then add the maple syrup and lemon juice and macerate until serving.
  3. To the pot with the quinoa, add the milk and the sugar or maple syrup, cover again, and continue cooking for an additional 3-5 minutes, to soften the quinoa further. When the grains are very soft (there should still be some almond milk at the bottom of the pot), remove from the heat, and remove the lid. Fluff the quinoa with a fork, and leave to cool for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the yogurt to the quinoa and stir it through (do not add the yogurt while quinoa is very hot, to avoid destroying the live cultures in the yogurt). Add the vanilla paste and stir to incorporate.
  5. Divide the quinoa among 4 bowls, top with more almond milk if desired, then garnish with the berries and large coconut flakes. The quinoa porridge can also be made the night before (or as part of your meal prep), then divided among 4 jars for enjoying the next morning, or through the week. If eating later, do not macerate strawberries ahead of time, use freshly cut ones drizzled with maple syrup instead.
