High-Protein Porridge

By Cathe Olson

Bowl of porridgeThis hot breakfast cereal is a good source of minerals and B vitamins, as well as protein. Put it on first thing when you get up in the morning and by the time you’re showered and dressed, it will be ready.

1/3 cup quinoa

1/3 cup millet

1/3 cup amaranth

5 cups water

Pinch sea salt

1/4 cup flax or sesame seeds, ground

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or cardamom (optional)

Rinse quinoa. Place grains, water, and sea salt in heavy-bottomed pot. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent cereal from sticking to bottom of pan. Stir in ground seeds and spices.

Makes 4 servings.
