Apple Caramel Quinoa Porridge- Feeding the masses

Caramel Apple Quinoa Porridge

Okay folks. Here’s a hearty and sweet quinoa porridge just for you! I made it at the Rooted in Truth Retreat last weekend for Core 7 Fitness. It’s NEW and delicious. Dairy free- gluten free.

2 cups quinoa

4 cups water

1 tsp kosher salt

1/3 cup brown sugar

3 Honeycrisp apples, cored and diced ( I left the skins on)

1/2 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup Crown Maple Bourbon syrup (available at walmart)

12 oz. whole coconut milk

First- make the quinoa. in a large pot, add the quinoa, water, salt and 1/3 cup brown sugar (you could also use a sugar substitute). Bring to a simmer and gently boil for 6-8 minutes. Remove from the heat and place a lid on the pot. Let it sit for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the caramel apple sauce. Yum. In a medium pot, over medium heat. Melt the butter and 1 cup brown sugar. Once is bubbles a bit and it melted, add the diced Honeycrisp apples. Simmer and cook for 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the maple bourbon syrup. Allow the syrup to cool slightly.

You know you want a bite….

Whisk the coconut milk into the cooked quinoa just before serving. This makes it rich and creamy and divine.

To serve- place about 3/4 cup quinoa porridge into a bowl, then about 1/3 cup of the apple caramel maple bourbon sauce on top.

You’re welcome.
