Quinoa is the only grain which contains all nine essential amino acids in proteins, making it an ideal grain for those interested in plant-based protein.

It's also incredibly versatile and the flakes in particular make a delicious porridge, and are easier to cook than standard quinoa grains.

Cooking Time: 3 minutes
Makes: 1 serving

100g quinoa flakes
50ml rice milk
1 grated carrot/carrot pulp
Half a grated baby beet/beetroot pulp
Tsp cinnamon powder
Tblsp peanut butter (optional)

Add the vegetable pulp/grated beetroot and carrot to the dry quinoa.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients and add the milk.

Place in the microwave on high for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Add the cinnamon, stir and replace for another 1 minute and 30.

Remove from the microwave and tuck in! It's delicious with a dollop of salt-free peanut butter, and is naturally sugar-free.
