To gear up for a month of decadent eating and drinking, I thought a healthy breakfast post was in order. My breakfast routine (or sometimes, lack thereof) bores me, so it’s nice to throw a few different options into the mix from time to time.

You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1/2 cup polenta
  • 500mls water
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick
  • 1 cardamon pod, bruised
  • fresh berries or poached rhubarb and natural yoghurt to serve
  • honey (optional)


Place the quinoa, polenta, water, cinnamon and cardamon in a bowl and over the water. Allow the mixture to soak for 10 minutes or so.

Transfer the mix to a medium non-stick saucepan and gently bring to the boil. Lower the heat and simmer or 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally and topping up with water, if necessary.

Spoon into a bowl and top with berries and drizzle with honey if desired.
