Moreover, together with cocoa they form an irresistible couple. Healthy quinoa porridge with coffee and cocoa represents a nutritionally valuable and exceptionally tasty breakfast with quinoa, chia seeds and cocoa that you can have on the table in just a moment.
Quinoa is a naturally gluten-free, easy-to-digest superfood. It has a high protein and fiber content and a balanced ratio of amino acids. It tastes great, and interestingly at the same time. If somebody hasn't tried it yet, I definitely recommend to do so. Feel free to start with this fit breakfast recipe. It is a perfect source of vitamins and minerals and can be easily used in both savory and sweet recipes. It has a slightly nutty flavor and should be rinsed before cooking. You can use cow's milk or any plant-based milk in the recipe, therefore you can also prepare this quinoa porridge in a vegan version. In case you don't want to use chia seeds in the recipe, reduce the amount of milk by half.
Quinoa porridge isn't more complicated to prepare than its oatmeal variation, so really anyone can prepare such tasty and unconventional breakfast. It tastes great when served hot, as well as cold. And I prefer to serve it with cherries the most, yummy!
