Quinoa Breakfast Porridge Recipe-Healthy Quinoa Porridge with Nuts-Dry Fruits

Quinoa has become one of my favorites now-a-days and this creamy porridge is no exception. I love all kinds of porridge and it is my usual morning breakfast. I made quinoa porridge in the same way as my oats porridge and it turned awesome!! I topped it with lot of  nuts and dry fruits to make it more delicious. It is protein rich, filling, nutritious, gluten free and very easy to make. You can use leftover quinoa also for this.
