Experiment I did as I created this slightly sweet, protein-filled quinoa porridge that will fill you up and give you the healthy fuel you need to power you through your morning. A serving of this porridge contains 8 g of complete protein, just from quinoa alone–plus 7 g from chopped almonds. That’s almost equal to 1/2 block of tofu! The stevia and vanilla extract your sweet tooth without rocking your blood sugar. Enjoy!
