Tricolour Quinoa Porridge


  • 1 cup of Tricolour Quinoa
  • 2 cups of filtered water
  • 1/2 cup of pitted dates (soaked in some of the filtered water)
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • Juice from 1/2 a lime
  • 1 grated pear
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tbsp of raw honey
  • Blueberries
  • Toasted sunflower, pumpkin seeds and almonds


Soak Quinoa in water overnight and rinse well to remove the bitter soap like substance called saponin before cooking.

Pour water, quinoa, dates, lime juice, pear, salt and honey in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until quinoa is soft. 

Serve with blueberries and toasted seeds and nuts. Sprinkle some lime zest over the top of the porridge.

Serves 4
