Quinoa porridge (MM)

 Quinoa porridge (MM)

Here is the first recipe for my Mary's Mini (MM).  If you are doing the MM, and have chosen quinoa as your starch, (and are doing the version with fruit), this breakfast is great.
It is easy to make, delicious to eat, and will keep you full all morning.
Here are the simple instructions!


Ingredients

1c quinoa, washed and drained
2c water for cooking
1 banana
1/2 cup water
blueberries or mixed berries
(you can add sweetener if you desire, I usually add a little maple syrup)

After you wash your quinoa, and drain in a mesh strainer, place into a medium saucepan.
Pour in 2 cups water.  Bring to a boil over medium high heat.
When it comes to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low.
Cook for 15 minutes. (NO PEEKING)
After 15 minute, turn off heat, and let sit for 5 minutes (STILL NO PEEKING)
While it is sitting for 5 minutes, lets make the banana milk.  
In your blender, add one peeled banana, and 1/2 cup water.  Blend for about 30 seconds, until smooth.
Now, remove quinoa from the stove, uncover, add your banana milk.  Stir well. If you want a little bit more creamy, add a little more water.
Now, serve in a large bowl, and add your berries and sweetener (if having).
This is one serving size.  
I eat this 90% of my breakfasts on the mini.

  1. I lived on this for Passover - easy to make and yummy. I also made extra banana milk and added it right before eating each day. I made a double batch and it lasted me for several breakfasts. Saved this one for next year - thanks!
