I love Quinoa for a variety of reasons. The biggest reason to love Quinoa is for its nutritional value. Quinoa is the only grain that all by itself is a complete protein. It’s also really easy to make. For this recipe you need

1 cup Quinoa
2 cups Vanilla milk (I used Almond Vanilla milk, you could use regular milk and add a splash of vanilla)
1/2 cup of toasted walnuts
Blueberries

Pour milk and quinoa into a pot. Cook on high until it comes to a boil then turn down to simmer and cover for about ten minutes or until Quinoa is cooked. Spoon quinoa into bowls add toasted walnuts and blueberries and enjoy. If you wanted to sweeten it a little more you could add honey or maple syrup. Also if you like your porridge a little soupy you can add more milk or cream. This is so delicious and filling!
