Macadamia blueberry quinoa porridge

As breakfast is the first and most important meal of the day, why not make it enjoyable? Quinoa flakes are used as the base of this porridge and are flavour neutral. They make a great base to add your favourite toppings to and ensure you enjoy your important meal!

Soaked in apple cider vinegar

I always soak my blueberries in water and apple cider vinegar for 2 minutes as this helps to remove most pesticides from the skin.

Quinoa flakes all cooked

Quinoa flakes cook a lot quicker than quinoa, so they make for an easy warming breakfast.

Porridge toppings

This is the combination of toppings I decided upon. The blueberries add a burst of juiciness, the macadamias add a crunch and the cinnamon adds warmth.
