Quinoa and Chia Oatmeal with Stone Fruits

I found this recipe from talesofkitchen.com. It looked absolutely amazing, and after combining the ingredients, it became a quick and easy go to breakfast meal for me. I hope you all enjoy it as much as my family and I have!

Ingredients (8)quinoa-chia-porridge-with-stone-fruit04

  • 3/4 cups quinoa
  • 2 cups almond milk (or your favorite nut milk)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 5 TBSP chia seeds
  • 1 TBSP coconut butter (optional)
  • 2 TBSP sweetener of choice (raw honey, maple syrup)
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 ’empty’ vanilla pod (after I scrape the vanilla seeds and use them in whatever recipes, I keep the pods and use them to flavor porridge like this or other liquids)
  • pinch ground cinnamon
  • 3 green cardamom pods
  • 3 slices of fresh turmeric (or 1/2 tsp ground turmeric)
  • a handful of currants (or raisins)
  • 1/3 fresh peach, roughly sliced/chopped
  • 1/3 fresh nectarine, roughly sliced/chopped
  • Toppings: the rest of the fresh peach and fresh nectarine, plus fresh figs, coconut flakes, almonds, fresh thyme

Ingredients (10)

  • Add all the ingredients for the porridge to a pot and place on medium to low heat.
  • Bring to a boil and turn down the heat to the minimum.
  • Simmer until cooked, covered, stirring every now and then and making sure it
  • doesn’t stick to the bottom (a small cast iron casserole is good for this).
  • Once ready, add the toppings and serve warm.

 

Peace + Blessings
