*Even when a package of quinoa indicates that it has been pre-rinsed, I recommend rinsing again to eliminate any chance of a bitter taste.
Advance prep option: For a speedy morning routine, I cook a batch of this multi-grain porridge in advance and portion it into individual bowls. When ready to eat, I add some extra milk and warm in the microwave, adding more milk until I reach my preferred level of creaminess. You can add an assortment of toppings, although I usually keep it simple with a drizzle of maple syrup or a sprinkle of brown sugar and a side of fruit. (The porridge in the photo is two days old, and I kept it a little thicker than I usually do so you could see the texture and toppings better.)
