Quinoa Porridge

Soft Food Only, No Crunchy or Crispy Food!

These are the instructions given me by my periodontist after having dental surgery. Not, actually, that difficult to follow – steamed vegetables, rice and other cooked grains, noodles, lettuce salads, smoothies, soft fruit … The potato chip ban is a little hard to take, but I can have french fries as long as they’re not too crispy-crunchy. This is what I made for breakfast today in order to satisfy the soft food only criteria, and in order to consume something filling before I had to use the nasty tasting post-surgery mouth rinse (no food or drink for 2 hours after using):


Quinoa Porridge

(thanks to my friend Sh. for his highly recommended use of quinoa for breakfast)

1/3 cup quinoa flakes

2/3 cup water

1/3 cup milk (I used almond milk)

dried fruit *

Mix the quinoa flakes, water and milk together in a pot. Add the dried fruit.  Bring to a boil, turn down heat to low and cook and stir until liquids are absorbed – this takes only a couple of minutes.

* I used a small handful of dehydrated blueberries and a small handful of dehydrated strawberries – organic berries I obtained in the summer and dehydrated in my dehydrator, then packed in freezer bags and froze. When the strawberries are rehydrated in the porridge, the taste is wonderful. Mmmmmm!

I also chopped up half a banana and added to the top of the bowl of porridge with a bit more almond milk.
