Breakfast Idea: Quinoa and Millet Porridge

Once again, Minoo prepared a few recipes for breakfast or brunch at the Gilmore Park Church Community Kitchen. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A good nutritious breakfast will help kids to perform better in school.


This Quinoa and Millet Porridge is stained purple by the blueberries which is rich with antioxidants. It is a good substitute to the more regular oatmeal porridge.


  • 1/4 cup millet
  • 1/4 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • honey

Bring the 2 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan and add the millet and quinoa.

Season with a dash of salt. Return to the boil and reduce heat to simmer.

Cook for 15 to 20 minutes.
