*Guru Tips*

-Be sure to rinse the quinoa under cool water in a fine mesh colander for at least 1 minute prior to cooking to remove this seed’s natural bitter protective coating.

-The almond milk tends to boil over so use a large saucepan.

-Substitute dried raisins or cranberries, for the blueberries and slivered almonds for the chopped walnuts if desired.

-Refrigerate extra porridge for a quick grab n’ go breakfast throughout the week.
