Ingredients

    For the Quinoa Porridge
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cups vegan milk of your choice
  • 2 small pears, chopped into pea-sized pieces (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • pinch of cloves
  • Toppings
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • maple syrup, optional, to taste

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, add the quinoa, vegan milk, half of the pear, golden raisins, lime juice, ginger, and cloves.
  2. Bring the a boil, then reduce the heat, and simmer. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Your quinoa porridge is done when the grains have plumped up and most of the water is absorbed.
  3. Divide the quinoa porridge between two bowls, and add the rest of the fresh pear, plus your other toppings, and enjoy hot!
