The cold is here and even though I still drink my smoothies regularly, there are days when I prefer to have something warm and comforting for breakfast. And what better than using quinoa, this pseudo cereal that is full of nutrients and that is so noble when preparing it, it is used for desserts and savory preparations, and also for breakfast. That is why I am leaving you with this super recipe that will break your fast with a bomb of nutrition and flavor.

To cook the quinoa, I recommend you wash it with plenty of water, until we eliminate its saponin (foam), to prevent it from becoming bitter. Cook over low heat in a 1:1.5 ratio (eg 1 cup of dry quinoa x 1 1/2 cup of water). It is not necessary for this recipe to add salt or another seasoning, so you can use it for any preparation, in addition to your breakfast porridges.

For the vegetable walnut drink, activate your walnuts overnight in cold water to free them of their anti-nutrients and make them taste better. It is necessary to discard the soaking water. You can blend 1 cup of activated nuts with 4 cups of water, to obtain an approximate liter of vegetable drink (you can store it for a maximum of 3 days in the refrigerator).

The "flaxseed egg" is a preparation, based on flaxseed flour and water, where we use the proportion of 1 tbsp of flaxseed flour x 3 of water. Mix well until the mucilage forms, similar to the egg.

We prepared this recipe together with Dr. Rodolfo Neira through Instagram Live that we broadcast live yesterday, Saturday, May 30. If you missed it, you can watch it here and thus learn the procedure on video:

Quinoa and Persimmon Porridge

1 large serving


  • 1 1/2 cups of quinoa cooked without salt
  • 1 1/2 cups nutty vegetable drink
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons of powdered panela


  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 flaxseed "egg"
  • 1 ripe persimmon
  • 1/2 pomegranate
  • vegan granola


  • In a small saucepan, add the quinoa with 1/4 cup of the nut vegetable drink, until it gets lukewarm, without bringing it to a boil, and add the cinnamon powder and the panela (or the sweetener you prefer). Remove from the heat, add the rest of the vegetable drink and mix everything.
  • Serve in a bowl and decorate with the liaison egg, peanut butter, well-ripened persimmon (like jam), vegan granola and pomegranate or any other fruit you have available.

I hope you like this recipe and you can prepare it in these autumn days.
