"Melt in your mouth quinoa porridge made extraordinarily creamy with coconut oil, almond butter and homemade cashew milk. I added sweetness here with a touch of cinnamon, vanilla bean, and glistening fruit. This recipe is lusciously nourishing, just as porridge should be." - Eleanor Ozich from Petite Kitchen
