Ingredients

1 cup quinoa (or millet or oats)

1 cup milk, almond milk or coconut milk 

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

1 vanilla pod, sliced lengthways 

Coconut shavings, for serving 

1 cup plain yogurt or coconut cream 

2 to 3 fresh plums, sliced 

1/2 cup mixed roasted nuts 

4 teaspoons honey or alternative healthy sugar, for serving 

Fresh strawberries, for serving 

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the quinoa with 1 cup water and the milk, cinnamon and vanilla pod. Bring to the boil, then simmer for about 15 minutes until cooked. Add a little hot water during cooking if you find the mixture becoming too thick, although you are looking for a porridgy consistency.
  2. Lightly toast the coconut shavings in a dry pan over medium heat.
  3. When the quinoa is cooked, layer your breakfast into small glass jars or bowls, dividing and layering the quinoa, coconut, yogurt, plums, nuts, honey and strawberries between them.
