A super tasty breakfast that gives you a morning super boost.

Serves 2

Ingredients (Porridge)

  • ½ cup quinoa
  • 1 cup oats
  • pinch mixed spice
  • 2 cups water

Ingredients (Apple Compote)

  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, and roughly diced
  • ¼ cup water
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 100g cherries
  • handful of raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon desiccated coconut


1. Place the quinoa, oats, and mixed spice in a pan, add the water, and bring to a boil on low heat. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. You may need to add a touch more water so keep an eye on the consistency.

2. To make the apple compote, simply place the apples in a pan and cover with water, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Boil for 10 minutes until tender. Drain and tip them into a food processor. Blitz to a smooth consistency and set aside.

3. Now all you need to do is put the dish together. While the porridge is still warm, divide it between two bowls and top with a big spoonful of the apple compote. Now add the fresh cherries, raspberries, and yoghurt. Top with coconut and serve.
