Quinoa Porridge with Steamed Pears

Steamed pears on quinoa porridge

Steaming pears in a combination steam oven produces a nicely steamed pear that holds its shape and colour.

This protein packed breakfast is full of colour, flavour and nutrients. It is really versatile, play around with flavours with different types of milks or fruits.

½ cup quinoa (any colour of your choice)

1 cup of coconut milk (or any other milk)

1 pear

1Tb dried cranberries

1Tb pistachios

½ tsp cinnamon

1Tb honey

Extra honey to serve

  2. Cut pear in half, remove core. Cut each half into quarters. Place onto a tray sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with honey.
  3. Place into steam oven and steam for 15minutes.
  4. While pears are steaming, rinse quinoa under warm water.
  5. Place rinsed quinoa and 1cup of water into a small saucepan, bring to a gentle simmer and cook for 15minutes.

  1. This looks delicious! I’ve just gotten in the habit of poaching fruit recently to try and encourage my toddler to eat more yoghurt. I made traditional porridge a couple of times to go with it and I really enjoyed it (even if she wasn’t that excited).. This looks like a great alternative. I think I’ll give it a go on the stove top.. hopefully little miss will enjoy it too
