Ingredients

Serves 4

  • 1 Cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 Cup white quinoa, rinse thoroughly with cool water
  • 2 Tbs Chia seeds
  • 4-5 Cups Water
  • Pinch of salt

For berry compote:

  • 2 Cups frozen berries, I use 1 cup of blueberries and 1 cup of raspberries
  • Few drops of vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbs Demerara sugar

To serve: 

  • 2 Tbs Coconut sugar
  • 1/2 Cup coconut cream
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder

+ dried fejoa for decore

Directions

Place the oats, quinoa, chia and water in a large pan over a low medium heat. Add a pinch of salt and stir well. Bring to a steady simmer for 15 minutes, stirring as often as you can to give you a smooth creamy porridge – if you like your porridge runny, simply add more water until you’ve got the consistency you like.

For berry compote. Place berries and sugar in a sauce pan over a medium heat. Cover and cook stirring gently (try to keep most of them from breaking up), until berries are warm and juices begin to be released, 5 to 7 minutes. Add vanilla extract and stir gently. Serve warm or at room temperature.

To Serve: Pour into bowls, spoon cream and berry compote on top. Sprinkle with coconut sugar and cinnamon powder.

Enjoy!
