Quinoa, Cranberries & Pecan Porridge. Porridge is comforting and warming, which is why the people of the Andes love it. It is also simple and packed with nutritious ingredients. If you don’t fancy using cranberries and pecans, you can try cocoa and raisins, mango, or any fresh fruit that’s in season.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
75g amaranth
100g white quinoa, cooked
40g cañigua or chia seeds
500ml almond milk
60g yacon syrup or honey

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
100g dried cranberries, or 100g of your favourite dried fruits or fresh berries
100g pecans, crumbled
A pinch ground cinnamon
1-2 tablespoons yacon syrup or honey

Method

  1. Rinse the amaranth, put it in a saucepan and cover with 150ml of water. Bring the water to the boil, then turn down the heat to low, cover the pan, and simmer the amaranth for 15 minutes until all the water has been absorbed. Remove the amaranth from the heat and allow to stand, covered, for a further 5 minutes. (You can do this while you’re cooking the quinoa, if you like.)
  2. Put the cooked quinoa, the cooked amaranth and the cañigua or chia seeds in a saucepan, cover with the almond milk and drizzle in the yacon syrup or honey, then stir to combine. Bring to the boil over a high heat, then turn down to a medium heat. Stir continuously for 15–20 minutes until the mixture has thickened to a rich and creamy porridge.
  3. Serve the porridge in bowls with your chosen fruit and some crumbled pecans. Dust with a pinch of cinnamon and drizzle over more yacon syrup or honey.
