Got leftover fresh cranberries? Make this Vegan Gluten-Free Quinoa porridge!

I got leftover fresh cranberries that I needed to use up so I invented this Vegan & Gluten-free Warm Quinoa Porridge!


t is such a lovely, warm, quinoa flakes porridge! You can add whatever you want, but I made it like this. The key is to make it not too sweet! πŸ˜‰


Recipe: For 4 persons


1 cup fresh cranberries Β  (105 gr)

2 cups unsweetened almond milk (500 ml)

1 cup quinoa flakes Β (110 gr)

2 teaspoons flaxseed

1 + 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/3 cup pecan halves Β (40 gr)

1/4 cup maple syrup, grade C (60 ml)


1. Take a medium cooking pot & add cranberries, almond milk, quinoa flakes, flaxseed, ground cinnamon & pecan halves. Bring to the boil & let it cook on medium-high heat for about 10 to 15 minutes or until your quinoa flakes are cooked & swollen. Stir often! When your cranberries are hot enough, they start to burst. Leave a few of them whole & crush the other one’s with a fork & spoon. This is what you want. Now, stir everything through & taste. I added 60 ml of maple syrup, grade C in total. You want it to be a bit sweet nut you must taste the sourness of the cranberries a bit! This is the way, I like it, so it is up to you!

2. Leave it to rest a few minutes & serve at once with loved ones! I drank this with a lovely rooibos cranberry tea! πŸ™‚ Yum yum! πŸ™‚Β β™₯Β Stay Tuned & subscribe by email! Join 1,800 email subscribers now!!! It is free!!!! Click the link here below to subscribe!!!

  1. What a brill idea Sophie. I love a bowl of porridge in the dead of winter, adding cranberries would make it super delicious. I shall bookmark for when it gets cooler. Nice use of the leftovers too, very creative. πŸ™‚

  2. I love porridge! πŸ™‚
    I make mine with oats but I love quinoa and will definitely try this soon πŸ™‚

    Do you think it will be faster to let the quinoa soak over night? πŸ™‚

    1. No, not at all! I used quinoa flakes, they only need 10 minutes of cooking. You can buy them at an organic food shop! I usually eat oat porridge but I had quinoa flakes in my pantry that I had to use up! It is also gluten-free wich Inlike! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  3. A fantastic idea! Your porridge has everything I love, Sophie.
