Berry Breakfast Quinoa Porridge

I have / had quinoa hiding in my cupboard not sure exactly how quinoa can hide but it was , this was British grown quinoa from Hodmedod's. I'd never have thought to make porridge with it though , shame I don't have any fancy kilner jars for ultimate breakfast styling.

Ingredients

2 cups of milk

1 cup of quinoa

Blackberries or any other berries (fresh or frozen)

Sugar to taste 

Vanilla essence



Method

Simmer the 2 cups of milk

Then add the cup of quinoa

Do watch !!



Bring to the boil

Then let shimmer for 15 minutes 
Then add the berries 




and warm through adding a few drops of vanilla essence .
