Wholesome Breakfast Quinoa Porridge


This breakfast quinoa porridge is so good and so easy you won’t believe it. I think I could say this is my favorite breakfast of them all, for being so cozy, satiating, and healthful. It’s made with pantry ingredients only and, if your quinoa is already cooked, you’ll have it ready in 5 minutes. This porridge is satiating, warming, not overbearingly sweet, and highly versatile. Besides being delicious, it has a nice amount of protein, it’s sugar-free as it’s sweetened with the banana only, and it’s packed with fiber and good fats. Add your favorite toppings and this lovely porridge will keep you satiated till your next meal.
