Chocolate Quinoa Porridge


Well we’re living in a time where pretty much everything goes, right? And wasn’t it Marie Antoinette who said “Let them eat cake…for breakfast”? And had she known about combining somewhat unlikely ingredients (although it depends what you consider ‘unlikely’), would she not instead have said “Let them eat chocolate quinoa porridge”? I think so.


1/3 cup quinoa
1 1/3 cup almond milk
1 tbsp Dutch cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp agave nectar

1 oz chocolate of choice
a few strawberries

Let the quinoa soak in the almond milk overnight. Transfer it to a pot, add the cocoa powder, and bring to a boil. Reduce to low heat until the quinoa has absorbed the milk. Stir in the agave nectar or brown sugar or whatever you prefer. Let the chocolate melt over it and add the strawberries if you like.  It’s an energy booster that’ll satisfy that one desire and give you two dancing feet. Enjoy!
