Ingredients

  • 1 bunch rhubarb about 10 stalks, trimmed, cut into 2 inch. - 5 cm lengths
  • 1/2 lb fresh strawberries 250 g, hulled and halved
  • 2 tbsp real maple syrup
  • 1 vanilla bean split lengthways and scraped
  • 1 cup white quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk + extra to serve
  • 2 tbsp roughly chopped pistachios

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 356F - 180C. In a bowl, add rhubarb, strawberries, maple syrup, and vanilla seeds. Toss to combine. 

  2. Place mixture on a baking sheet, along with the vanilla bean (for an easy cleaning, line the baking sheet with parchment paper - optional). Bake for 10 minutes or until just tender. Set aside to cool.

  3. Meanwhile, place quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer and rinse thoroughly with cool water for at least 2 minutes. Drain. Rinsing quinoa before cooking will remove its natural bitter or soapy taste. 

  4. Transfer to a medium saucepan, cover with 2 cups water, cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for 15 minutes on the lowest setting, or until quinoa is tender and water is almost absorbed. Add almond milk and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until quinoa boils and thickens.

  5. Divide porridge among serving bowls. Top with fruits and drizzle with pan juices. Sprinkle with pistachio. Serve with extra almond milk, if desired.
