Recipe: Quinoa Porridge with Toasted Almonds & Apricots
via Food & Wine
1 cup red quinoa
1 1/2 cups almond milk, divided
1 cup water
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup chopped apricots
1/3 cup chopped almonds, toasted
Maple syrup, for serving
Step 1: Rinse the quinoa in 3 changes of water in a
bowl, rubbing the grains and letting them settle each
time before pouring off the water (if the quinoa does not
settle, drain in a large fine-mesh sieve after each rinse).
Step 2: Put the quinoa, 1 cup almond milk, water and
salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over moderate
heat, then reduce the heat to moderately low and
simmer, stirring occasionally, until the quinoa is tender
and most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 20
minutes. Remove from the heat.
Step 3: Divide the quinoa between 4 warm bowls.
Drizzle with the remaining almond milk and top with
the chopped apricots and almonds.
