Pumpkin Quinoa Porridge


In an attempt to consume more quinoa AND pumpkin, this seemed a natural fit. I love orange vegetables at this time of year, and their starchiness helps many (especially Vata type) keep warm as the nights get cooler. This can also be a Wild Rose Cleanse friendly breakfast, just use fresh apricots and unsweetened apple sauce.

This only takes half an hour to prepare, we all know how precious morning time is. In the interest of dirtying as few dishes as possible, I came up with these measurements:

– 1/3 cup uncooked quinoa
– 2/3 cup water
– 1/3 cup coconut milk
– 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
– 1/3 cup apple sauce
– 1/4 tsp cloves
– 1/4 tsp nutmeg
– 1/2 tsp cinnamon
– 2-3 dried apricots, chopped
– pepitas

Rinse quinoa and place in small saucepan with water. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer on low for 15-20 mins. Sit down and have a cup of coffee.

Near the end of the quinoa cooking time, add the rest of the ingredients to the pot. Stir together and continue to simmer until desired temp is reached.
