This Almond Quinoa Porridge recipe is a #HubSquad submission from one of our lovely members Laura Hartsuiker! We increased the yoghurt serving slightly to make a full protein serve but otherwise didn’t change a thing. The original submission suggested pomegranate seeds, however we had berries at the time of trying this recipe, either would taste great! We’ve also added the nutritional content. Thanks for sharing Laura!
