Berry Tahini Quinoa Porridge

Quinoa Porridge

This vegan, gluten-free breakfast will tick all your taste buds and be a ray of sunshine in the morning. It is packed full of goodness, every ingredient is highly nutritious.

This recipe has stemmed from my recent need to put tahini on everything. I am obsessed and getting through so many jars of it, at least one a week at the moment, I just love the flavor and texture and it works so well in savoury and sweet recipes. It is also a very nourishing spread high in protein, iron and calcium.

What I have for breakfast has such an impact on how I feel for the day not just a tummy feeling but a mental happiness and engagement that a good breakfast seems to stir in me. I hope you find happiness and yumminess in this breakfast.
