Coconut quinoa and chia porridge

Porridge is a lovely breakfast on a cold morning, and this recipe certainly spices up the standard gluten free breakfast fare. Plus, it’s packed with protein, which helps keep us fuller for longer.

Combine the chia seeds, quinoa, reduced-fat milk and water in a saucepan.
