I created this recipe in order to combine my daughter's love of cantaloupe, banana, and blueberries with my desire to serve her more quinoa. The outcome was fruity and delicious. This porridge is a great start to any day!

How to Make Dairy-Free Sunrise Quinoa Porridge

Step-by-Step

  1. Place quinoa, water, and lemon juice in a medium glass bowl. Cover and place in a warm place for 12-24 hours, or overnight, to reduce natural bitterness of the quinoa.
  2. Using a fine sieve, strain and then rinse the quinoa thoroughly under cold water, about 20-30 seconds.
  3. Place cantaloupe in container of an electric blender. Cover and blend until finely pureed, 10-20 seconds.
  4. Place pureed cantaloupe plus quinoa in a small saucepan. Stir and bring to a gentle boil, turn down the heat to low, and cook until quinoa appears translucent and most of the puree has been absorbed, about 5 minutes. Cover and let cool for an additional 5 minutes.
  5. Just before serving, stir mashed banana into the cooked quinoa, if desired. Top with warm blueberries.
  6. Note: Add bananas depending on the sweetness of your cantaloupe.
