If you’re freezing your buns off, you may be feeling the urge to swap your morning smoothie for something soothing, hearty, and warm.

Quinoa Porridge by Heather Pierce Giannone

After all, how can you “curl up” with a frozen mango-strawberry smoothie?! My teeth are jittering just thinking about it.

A warm oatmeal might feel like more work, but it doesn’t have to be if you use leftovers!

Whipped up some brown rice or quinoa to go with veggies earlier this week?

Morph them into this deliciously simple Warm Breakfast Porridge in less than 10 minutes.



1 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 – 1 cup almond milk
2 tbsp ground flax seeds
2 tbsp sunflower seeds
2 tbsp raisins
sprinkle of ground cinnamon


  1. Add all ingredients to a medium pot and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until creamy.
  2. Add more almond milk if it looks dry.
  3. Serve topped with a few extra sunflower seeds and raisins (and a drizzle of maple syrup if you want it a wee bit sweeter).
