Quinoa Breakfast Porridge

Yesterday, I made a pot of quinoa so I would have extra to store in the fridge to use in various recipes. For breakfast this morning, I used some to make breakfast porridge that is more nutritious than traditional oatmeal. I made a berry and banana variation with vanilla, cinnamon, and ginger but there are a lot of possible variations. Here are a few other ideas:

  • banana + peanut butter
  • raspberries + almond butter
  • peanut butter + cocoa powder
  • savory variation: poached egg + fresh herbs

Recipe for Quinoa Breakfast Porridge 


  • Cooked quinoa
  • Cashew milk (or any other milk)
  • Ripe banana (the riper, the better)
  • Toppings (mixed berries, banana, almond butter, peanut butter, etc.)
  • Spices (vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, etc.)


  1. Mash the banana in a bowl and add quinoa and milk of choice. Microwave for about 1 minute, or until porridge it hot.
  2. Add spices and stir, then top with whatever topping variation you desire.
  3. If you like your porridge a little sweeter, add pure maple syrup or raw honey and enjoy!
