Chai-Infused Vanilla Quinoa Porridge

A fantastic source of alkaline protein, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory flavanoids, healthy omega 3s, alkaline minerals and more from the quinoa; anti-clotting and anti-microbial compounds in the cinnamon; antibacterial, heart healthy nutmeg; more anti-inflammatory action and alkaline minerals from the cloves and plenty of fibre.

What a tasty start to the day, while also being filling and warming!


Info


Serves: 2

Preparation Time: 10 Minutes

Ingredients


  • 1 cup of dry quinoa (pref organic)
  • 2 cups of water (pref alkaline)
  • 1 stick of cinnamon (or 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger or 1 inch piece of fresh root ginger finely grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (pref fresh grated)
  • 1/2 cup of coconut cream or milk (depending on how creamy you want it)
  • 1/2 lemon skin grated (or lime)
  • 1 vanilla bean pod or vanilla essence
  • Sprinkle (half a handful) of assorted nuts and seeds to your liking
  • Optional: Coconut cream and berries (raspberries, blueberries, etc)

Instructions


First prepare the quinoa to the packet instructions OR follow the excellent advice on cooking light fluffy quinoa here at TheKitchn.

Once the quinoa is cooked and drained, add it back to the saucepan and stir in the chai spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg) if you’ve done them in a pestle and mortar) and add the coconut cream and throw in the scraped out vanilla pod (or add the drop or two of vanilla essence).

Warm through and then serve in a big bowl. To serve, add the lemon rind grated onto the top and sprinkle with extra ground cinnamon. Finally throw on the seeds and nuts (I recommend sesame seeds with this especially).

As an indulgent extra, you can also serve with a dollop of coconut cream, which is alkaline and JUST DELICIOUS!

Then top with the berries.

Eat while it’s hot!
