Quinoa Porridge Recipe - Chichilicious

Since I found out I was allergic to oatmeal in 2009, I have been avoiding anything that contains oatmeal, but that can be a hard task since a lot of the cereals, snacks, and cookies contain oatmeal. The one thing that I really missed was hot oatmeal with brown sugar and fruits for breakfast. Now, I have hot quinoa porridge, and its been so long that I can’t even remember what hot oatmeal tastes like, but I think this is pretty darn close, and just as satisfying.
